Abelia - Sweet Emotion

Abelia mosanensis 'SMNAMDS'

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 scent 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.

Abelia are adaptable to a range of soil types and will tolerate periods of dry soil. Best growth is in moist, well-drained soils; benefits from mulch in the lansdcape.There are few problems with this plant. It is low maintenance, and isn't prone to pest problems. To maximize the red fall color, plant 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. Fertilize in early spring.

Sweet Emotion® abelia blooms on old wood in early spring - prune only immediately after blooming, if needed.

Larger and more upright than other abelias, Sweet Emotion should be given sufficient space to develop its graceful habit. For the longest bloom time, do not allow it to dry out in spring.
