Abelia grandiflora 'Rose Creek'

Rose Creek Abelia

Evergreen Shrub

"Compact and very flowery this form of the dependable Abelia fits into smaller areas and perfumes the late summer autumn gardens with masses of small white flowers. To just 3' x 3' in 7 years for full sun to light shade and most soils. Drought adapted when established it will also accept regular summer irrigation. Slow growing and cold hardy evergreen. Following the massive bloom the calyx of each flower remains and turns madder red. A second season of showiness." --Courtesy Xera Plants
