A HUGE improvement on an already tough and beautiful evergreen shrub. 'Rose Creek' is a much more compact and floriferous selection. Very slow rounded growth to 3' tall and as wide in 5 years. Profuse clusters of white flowers appear from July until frost. The small rosy calyxes remain after flowering and continue to be showy through winter. Foliage turns bronze in cold weather. A true dwarf Abelia x grandiflora with all the best attributes of the more common variety. Full sun to light shade in well drained soil. Tolerates some drought when established. Great low hedge, en masse, or as a border shrub.

Glossy rich green new growth with pink overtones emerges in spring and matures to a glossy dark green in summer and returns to its colorful side in fall when it reverts to purple-green in fall and winter. Clusters of fragrant, 1/2", white, bell shaped flowers are born from May to frost. A tough and durable evergreen shrub. An open pollinated seedling (along with 'Rose Creek') of Abelia chinense and selected through Michael Dirr's breeding program at UGA. Abelias are easily grown, drought, salt, deer, and pest resistant upright to arching evergreen to semi-evergreen shrubs. Adapatable to a variety of soil conditions.

Don't really know who the daddy is, but the eagle eye of Mike Dirr chose this seedling grown from Abelia chinensis seed pollinated by other Abelia cultivars. Selected for its low mounding and compact growth habit, crimson stem color and profuse flowering. White flowers are set off by mauve-rose sepals for a two-tone effect. Abelia is one of the few woody plants that will keep blooming for most of the summer. Makes a nice low hedge in that shady spot.

A wonderful Abelia selected by Michael Dirr with a low mounding habit with white flowers and crimson red stems. This is the first clone released from his breeding program at the University of Georgia. Although more floriferous early in the season, even when the white corollas are sparse or gone, the reddish-pink calyx is very showy. More restrained growth than many hybrid species clones and that can be useful. Especially rich Fall colors, becoming glossy purple green.
