How to Use Pink Abelia in the Landscape
Add just one Pink Abelia near an entryway to welcome guests in style. Or, use several in a low, informal hedge. For a fast result, plant them two feet apart on center, measuring from the center of one to the center of the next.
Try a short row of Pink Abelia as a backdrop for your Victory Garden. You won't believe how many pollinators these sweet shrubs support.
Use at the base of taller trees, shrubs and Ornamental Grasses. Squeeze the most out of your design with their outstanding show all year-long.
This improved Pink Abelia cultivar should be added to mixed borders to soften the look. Plan for their full height and spread to make the most of their colorful character.
Allow the lyrical arching stems to share a garden story with your guests. Their dramatic red stems set the stage for dialogue. Consider them your conservation starter!
Mass plantings allow you to fully appreciate the graceful arched form. Add successive rows in a staggered, zigzagging planting pattern, then mulch between plants until they grow together and touch.
Even if you have a small space garden, you can elevate them in outdoor containers for years. Enjoy their beautiful screening power behind your patio seating area and to block unsightly views.
#ProPlantTips for Care
Pink Abelia grows in either full sun or part shade. Provide your plants at least four hours of direct sunlight a day. With more sun, you'll get more blooms and a tighter form.
Well-drained soil is best. You may need to mound up with a heap of additional soil 18 inches high by three feet wide to improve drainage. Add a decorative landscape border for a sophisticated raised bed. Or, plan to use this beauty as a container plant.
Pink Abelia blooms on new wood, so prune in late winter to shape. Remove a few of the thickest stems at ground level to keep your shrub vigorous.
If you want to keep it smaller, you can conduct a hard shearing at that time. You can even cut it back to the ground to rejuvenate it, as needed.
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Container plants will need a medium amount of water their whole life.
Apply a three-inch layer of mulch over the root system. Pull it back six inches from the stems, and reapply as needed.
In warmer climates, the leaves remain on the shrub. In colder zones, it will behave as a deciduous plant.
Make the most of your space. Choose hard-working, low-maintenance shrubs that deliver a plethora of ornamental features.
Pink Abelia is one of the best. We are so proud to offer commercial-grade plant material. Order today, and track your package right to your doorstep. Enjoy!
