Abelia - Sweet Emotion

Abelia mosanensis

This remarkable Abelia offers superior hardiness and three season interest!  In mid to late spring pink blooms burst forth upon the graceful, arching branches. Loved by pollinators, the exceptional sent of Jasmine is completely alluring! Enjoy some lovely cut stems in your home.  Because this Abelia flowers on old wood, do not prune until immediately after bloom, if desired.   Glossy foliage turns orange-red in fall. This shrub is larger and more upright than other Abelias, therefore, allow plenty of space for the development of its graceful form.  Fall color will be best when planted in full sun. Excellent specimen, hedge or backdrop in mixed borders. Deer and rabbit resistant.

There are few problems with this plant. It is low maintenance, has nice bark, and isn't prone to pest problems. To maximize the red fall color, the plants should be placed in full sun. Plants in too much shade will color up later in the fall and may lose their leaves before they turn bright red. Tolerant of most soils except extremely wet ones. pH adaptable. Fertilize in early spring. Tolerates pruning at any time, but best done in late fall or winter.

A new compact form of burning bush with dense, fine branching and smaller leaves. This is a very good choice for residential landscapes. It has outstanding fall color. Developed by Michael Hayman of Louisville KY.
