Vintage Charm™

Abelia

Fill the summer garden with clouds of highly scented white flowers. Vintage Charm™ Abelia reinvents a classic favorite into a more compact form with an unbelievable flowering display. With more flowers clusters per branch, this fragrant abelia turns into a billowing mass of white blooms in early summer. They last and last, aging to pink, and finally a light parchment tan. Holds its leaves well in late summer heat; mostly deciduous in winter. All the hardiness and low maintenance qualities you'd expect from abelia, including deer, drought, and pest-resistance. Its medium-sized growth habit, approximately 4 feet tall by 6 feet wide, eliminates pruning chores, too.

    In the Garden

    Versatile abelia perform so well in the landscape, they are practically maintenance free. Many varieties are fragrant and our selections are long flowering from summer into fall. They are semi-decidous in the south and will retain most of their foliage during the dormant period.

     

    Use abelia for places that are full sun to part shade. They are frost, drought and heat tolerant as well as deer-resistant! Beautiful in mixed containers, small gardens, pathways and in mass. Spice up the garden with these truly special plants that spice up the view with delicate blooms and fantastic foliage!
