Abelia - Sunshine Daydream

Colorful Foliage and Flowers

Sunshine Daydream Abelia is a compact shrub with variegated foliage and lovely flowers. Plant a few for a short, colorful border along your sidewalk, or perhaps just a few in your perennial bed for an enduring splash of color.

Your Sunshine Daydream is an Abelia with a more compact nature than some other cultivars but still possessing all the majestic color you’ve come to expect of an Abelia. Like a “daydream” on a summer day resplendent in “sunshine”, Sunshine Daydream presents an elegant mixture of color and texture that seems too beautiful to be real.

Beloved most for its colorful foliage, your Sunshine Daydream features glossy leaves of a lively green hue with shades of cream. The green/cream blend sets the stage for the exquisite, rosy edging of each leaf. As if the lovely foliage wasn’t enough, trumpet-shaped, white blooms appear in late spring and persist into fall, slowly transitioning to a rosy hue with the passage of time. The subtle fragrance of the blossoms creates a compelling allure for your yard’s pollinators.

In autumn an additional splash of color appears with the foliage transitioning to purple, an engaging picture that blends with the purple stems.

Sunshine Daydream is an evergreen shrub that will grow up to 4 feet tall with an equal spread. It has a mounded habit and a spreading nature that is more compact than many other Abelia cultivars. Under optimal conditions can live up to 30 years, so it’s even quite long-lived.

An Abelia variety that has a lot to offer, Sunshine Daydream Abelia’s colorful foliage is sure to be one of your favorite additions to your yard this year.
