The perfect summer shrub for patios and small gardens - a long flowering period, unusual blooms and high fragrance! This unique colour form produces elegant trumpet-shaped flowers in profusion from mid-summer and into autumn, bearing butter-yellow throats flushed through with pink blotches, to offer something really different to your patio planting. The compact arching stems of Abelia 'Sunny Charms' offer real architectural appeal too, lending it to mixed borders and for use a low informal hedge. A rich honey fragrance will not only delight the gardener, it will also bring butterflies and other pollinators to the garden. Height: 120cm (4'). Spread: 1m (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.
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.
