Little Richard Abelia
Low Maintenance & Fragrant Flowers
The Little Richard Abelia gives you sweet-smelling blooms that last for up to 9 months!
It is compact enough to fit in the tightest spots in your garden... yet it displays fragrant flowers that last until winter. It's nearly maintenance-free!
Glossy emerald green foliage provides a lush backdrop for Little Richard Abelia's trumpet-shaped blooms. These flowers last from spring until the first frost. This Abelia’s unique flowers are creamy white with deep pink accents.
You'll want to plant these anywhere you spend time. You'll love the sweet, citrus scent these blooms give off. They're perfect near patios or walkways.
As fall approaches in the colder regions, its deep green foliage will begin to turn lovely shades of bronze and copper. In warmer areas, your Abelia's foliage will remain green all year.
Maturing to just 3 feet tall, your Little Richard Abelia can be planted in rows for a lovely foundation hedge. With its upright and naturally rounded shape, this shrub can be grown in small groupings. Looks great in a mixed bed of other flowering shrubs such as Hydrangeas or Azaleas.
Plant this little shrub around your patio to enjoy its pleasant fragrance and bright blooms. Be sure to keep your binoculars handy because this beauty is a popular attraction for butterflies and humming birds. Hardy in growing zones 6-9.
