No Pruning Required
The Abelia does not require regular pruning if you prefer a more natural looking plant. However, if you desire a more uniform shape, or wish to encourage new growth, minimal pruning is suggested. This can be done in early spring, prior to blooming or in the late fall after the bloom period has ended.
Abelia shrubs make a fabulous choice for nearly any landscape!
First discovered in China, these glossy evergreen shrubs are known for their eye-pleasing foliage, amazingly long bloom period and their opposite leaf arrangement. A relative to the honey suckle, their tubular blooms appear against shiny green foliage to provide you with a show that will last from early May until the first frost.
