Abelia x grandiflora 'Francis Mason' (Large Plant)

Glossy Abelia

Hardy Shrub

Glossy and vibrant, the yellow-green foliage of Abelia x grandiflora 'Francis Mason' makes a striking feature even before the blooms appear. From midsummer to autumn, this arching semi-evergreen shrub bears clusters of palest pink, tubular flowers at the tip of each stem, with a delicate honey fragrance. Abelia x grandiflora 'Francis Mason' is a much admired specimen for borders or informal hedging. Grow it in full sun for the best foliage colour. Height: 150cm (59"). Spread: 200cm (78").

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 lightly and remove any shoots which spoil the symmetry of the plant.
