Description
Sumptuously scented mauve flowers make ‘Pink Pong’ a stand out introduction. This hard working shrub offers year-round interest thanks to fully evergreen foliage - Abelia ‘Pink Pong’ won’t lose its leaves in winter like other abelias, but it is the long season of floral interest that sets this fragrant shrub out from the crowd. Large tubular flowers appear from May right through October, offering colour and honey-scent for six months of the year. As the flowers fade in autumn, their purple-copper bases (calyces) take over, extending the colour interest into winter. Excellent as hedging or a stand-alone specimen shrub. Height: 150cm (59"). Spread: 120cm (47").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
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.
More Info
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.
