- Abelia -

Finely-textured, shiny green leaves, compact growth and a long blooming season make Abelias attractive shrubs for hedges, screening and bank covers. Abelias tend to be evergreen in warmer climates and semi-deciduous in colder climates. Prune to remove deadwood and to keep the shrub dense. Two of the most popular hybrids vary in height and flower color.
