Abelia x grandiflora 'Kaleidoscope'

Glossy Abelia

Hardy Shrub

 Customer Rating
Enjoy an explosion of colour from this pretty new Abelia! The glossy, semi-evergreen leaves emerge in shades of lime green and yellow, intensifying as summer progresses and eventually gaining shades of fiery orange and red in the autumn. To compliment this striking foliage, Abelia x grandiflora 'Kaleidoscope' produces a profusion of delicate white, lightly fragrant blooms from July to October. Bred to have a dense, compact habit, this super little shrub is a great addition to borders and patio containers. Height 75cm (30"). Spread: 100cm (39").

Plant Abelia x grandiflora in garden borders in any fertile, well drained garden soil, in full sun. Alternatively grow Abelia plants in patio containers using soil based compost such as John Innes No.3.
Feed and water container-grown plants regularly. Deadhead faded Abelia flowers to prolong the flowering season. In exposed areas or those where winters are severe, apply a deep bark mulch around the base of Glossy Abelia plants in autumn to protect the roots from winter cold. Take care not to mound mulch up against the main stem. Alternatively protect with horticultural fleece. In late spring, trim Abelia x grandiflora 'Kaleidoscope' lightly and remove any shoots which spoil the symmetry of the plant.

Reviews
  1. Recommended for all year round colour!

    By Fiona Shaw 20-05-2013

    I've had this shrub for over 4 years now (not bought from T&M). It is delightful: neat, compact (front of the border), scented, colourful and almost fully evergreen (a few bare twigs). Mine flowers October-November and once into December. Fully hardy - no problem with the last 2 winters (4 weeks sub zero this winter, 2 weeks of -10+ last winter). Strongly recommended - ticks all the boxes!
