Abelia x grandiflora (Large Plant)

Glossy Abelia

Hardy Shrub

Abelia is an under-used shrub in the garden, but one that can give months of interest, colour and scent. The semi-evergreen plants have a robust, arching habit and give excellent autumn interest thanks to the fragrant flowers, borne in clusters. Abelia enjoys a warm, sunny border, and will perform well in dry, sunny borders.

Abelia can be clipped into a hedge easily, and the neat plants have glossy foliage, which stays on the plant for most of the year. Plants will be most hardy when grown by a sheltered wall, although Abelia x grandilfora is the most hardy of all species. Height: 3m (9'). Spread: 4m (13').

Plant Abelia x grandiflora into 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.
