Hardy Small Shrub with Outstanding Color 

The Abelia Kaleidoscope, Abelia X grandiflora 'Kaleidoscope', is a low-growing, compact shrub with variegated leaves. It would do well planted in a small garden or as a container plant on the patio.

Your Kaleidoscope Abelia is a study in color from spring through fall.

The show begins in the spring when leaves begin to appear on brilliant red stems. The leaves’ lime-green centers with yellow edges are such an unusual sight to behold that your eye can’t help but be drawn to it every time you pass.

Unlike many other plants, the color doesn’t dissipate with spring, but rather “matures” as summer progresses. The colors continue to darken as summer turns into fall, gracing your garden with color continuously.

Your Abelia Kaleidoscope has some additional features that are also sure to delight you.

In late spring cute little pink buds will cover your plant. These will later blossom into white flowers that will continue to bloom into autumn. In fact, your Kaleidoscope is considered the longest bloomer of the Abelias.

Your Abelia is not only incredibly beautiful, but also carefree. Unless you choose to shape it with a little pruning, there’s really no maintenance required.

It will resist frost and isn’t too bothered by drought or heat. It’s tolerant of many soil types and even the deer tend to leave it alone.

Planting an Abelia Kaleidoscope in your garden ensures interest from spring through fall without any heavy commitment from you. Just plant one today and sit back to watch the Kaleidoscope of colors materialize before you.

fall color Review by Billie D
Kaleidoscope abelias produce wonderful fall color. It is just outstanding.
Variegated foliage Review by May B
My garden is full of variegated plants as I like the many different colors of leaves. The abelia kaleidoscope is one of my favorites because the variegation changes during the growing season.
Name Says It All Review by twink770
I recieved my Kaleidoscope Abelia today (just a few days after ordering). It came well packaged and was just stunning when I opened the box. It has an abundance of color and a few blooms. Compared to my local nursery, the quality is much better. I tire of seeing plants that are sticks with a few twigs on them. This is very full and lush just as if it were growing in the yard already .Being a one income family, I am glad I found it at 1/2 the price listed, I would not have paid the full price. This was my first order at Nature Hills, and I will be back. This 3 gallon outshines anything you could purchase at your local nursery (unless you just get lucky). Plus to get a shrub this lush sight unseen! I am impressed Nature Hills.Really impressed. I will sing your praises!!!! Now I can't wait to see the Golden Grass I ordered arrive.
Picture doesn't do it justice Review by Monita66
The picture of the 3 gallon doesn't do it justice. Ordered 3 last fall & they were much bigger.
