Bright golden margins that mature to creamy yellow are added attractions to the glossy foliage of this densely branched shrub. White flowers in summer. Beautiful specimen or accent in the border. Fall foliage exhibits a range of yellow, orange and red coloring.
Border, Seacoast Exposure. Vivid foliage color makes this a fine plant to use against bare walls to add visual interest in all seasons. Dense enough to cover up foundations, utilities and vents completely. Fine textured evergreen shrubs are the perfect background for high contrast boldly colored perennial flowers. Tall enough to make a good informal hedge or spatial divider in the landscape. Well suited to surrounding art or fountains with bright and lush foliage. In perimeter planting where aging shrubs and climbers are bearing their legs, use this abelia for modesty and to add more sense of light in these often partially shaded situations.
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. As a groundcover, space plants 5 ft. apart, (closer for faster coverage). Control weeds with mulch until the plants cover the area.
