The leaves of this semi-evergreen shrub are copper pink when they emerge in spring, mature to yellow-green and revert to a copper rose color from fall through winter. Small, mildly fragrant flowers of pink and white begin to appear in late spring and continue to through to late fall. Attractive five-parted, rose-colored calyces subtend each bloom and persist well after the flowers fall. Abelias are easily grown, drought, salt, deer, and pest resistant upright to arching evergreen to semi-evergreen shrubs. Adaptable to a variety of soil conditions.
Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring. We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture."
