Little Richard Abelia
The Sweetest Smelling Abelia
The Little Richard Abelia gives you fragrant 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- and it's nearly maintenance-free!
You'll want to plant this abelia anywhere you spend time. With its sweet, citrusy scent, it's perfect near patios or walkways!
Glossy emerald green foliage provides a lush backdrop for Little Richard abelia's unique, trumpet-shaped blooms. The flowers are creamy white with deep pink accents, and last from spring until the first frost.
As fall approaches in the colder regions, the plant's 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 round.
Maturing to just three 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.
The Little Richard Abelia 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, too, because this beauty is a popular attraction for butterflies and hummingbirds! Hardy in Growing Zones 6-9.
