Compact Evergreen Shrub with Year-Round Appeal

Rose Creek Abelia, Abelia grandiflora 'Rose Creek', is a decorative, evergreen shrub. Plant these along your walkway for a gorgeous, low-growing hedge. Place a few in containers on your patio for a warm welcome to guests, or even plant just one as a lovely accent for your perennial bed. The possibilities are endless.

Your Rose Creek Abelia will astound you right from the start! New foliage in spring emerges with a delightfully pink tint that soon transitions to a vibrant green. The contrast against the red stems is amazing, drawing the eye to the glossy, evergreen foliage. As spring merges into summer, 1/2-inch long tubular flowers appear.

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 is 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.

Rose Creek Abelia is a beloved shrub among gardeners, and this popular variety is the most compact of the choices available, so you can fit one in just about anywhere. Don't miss out on this amazing ornamental shrub and the years of beauty and enjoyment it has to offer.

  • White flowers with bi-color effect
  • Long bloom period
  • Deer resistant
