Each delicate, white blossom springs forth from a base of pink leaves creating the impression of a bi-color bloom. Butterflies and hummingbirds are particularly fond of Rose Creek Abelia’s blossoms and will veritably flock to its impressive display. As if this remarkable parade of decorative color and form weren't enough, your Rose Creek Abelia will continue its ornamental show in autumn when its evergreen foliage takes on a soft, purple hue for the cold winter months.
Rose Creek Abelia will grow up to 3 feet tall with a 4-foot spread. It’s adaptable to a variety of soils and very easy to care for. It doesn't even require pruning to maintain its naturally-lovely form, but trimming spent blossoms will certainly encourage a more prolific, floral show. Rose Creek Abelia is drought hardy once established, and even your deer will tend to pass it by. Overall, it’s simply a wonderful, low-maintenance shrub with a lot of color.
