Abelia x grandiflora (Large Plant) - 1 x 3.5 litre potted abelia plant

Abelia x grandiflora (Large Plant) - 1 x 3.5 litre potted abelia plant

Abelia is an under-used shrub in the garden, but one that can give months of interest, colour and scent. The semi-evergreen plants have a robust, arching habit and give excellent autumn interest thanks to the fragrant flowers, borne in clusters. Abelia enjoys a warm, sunny border, and will perform well in dry, sunny borders.

Abelia can be clipped into a hedge easily, and the neat plants have glossy foliage, which stays on the plant for most of the year. Plants will be most hardy when grown by a sheltered wall, although Abelia x grandilfora is the most hardy of all species. Height: 3m (9'). Spread: 4m (13').
