Go crazy with color! 

Like a state fair funhouse, Funshine Abelia (Abelia x grandiflora ‘Minacara1) radiates color and excitement. Marmalade orange. Caramel. Lavender. Your garden won’t know what hit it!

This medium-sized shrub (2-3 feet tall) is hardy, semi-evergreen and easy to grow. It doesn’t require a lot of pruning or fussing. It is very content to grow where you plant it without a lot of attention.

But that doesn’t mean it won’t get a lot of attention! The unique orange/bronze leaves make the lavender trumpet-shaped flowers pop – both for you and for the hummingbirds and butterflies who can’t resist it. The lightly fragrant flowers will cover the branches all summer long. You’ll want to put this where you can enjoy them. It works into any garden bed or border and is an excellent foundation plant. It looks especially nice with lavender foliaged shrubs.

Funshine doesn’t mind clay soil and handles challenging sites well. It’s small enough to put into just about any garden and big enough to make a great visual impact.

This is a must for any garden, but especially one that needs a shot of reliable color or one that wants to add the buzz and hum of pollinators. This is a great addition to your home foundation planting, so don’t wait to order yours!

* Heat tolerant
* Semi-evergreen
* Easy care
* Deer resistant
* Clay soil
* Attracts pollinators
