Abelia x Grandiflora 'Mardi Gras' PP#15203

 

Mardi Gras Abelia has dramatic, beautiful foliage and will make your landscape rejoice. Foliage sings with colors of pink when first emerging and mature into a green with a white variegated edge held upon reddish copper colored stems. Autumn arrives and foliage takes a turn into a sun beam, golden bronze around the edges. A mature height of 3 feet and a width of 4 feet the Mardi Gras has attributes that make it an extraordinary focal point or blend with other plants.

Joseph's Take

Joseph's Take

I especially love planting and lightly colored dwarf abelia in front of larger dark green shrubs, the dark green leaves help pop the yellow color making a great contrast. Encore Azaleas would be a great choice since they bloom early while the abelia blooms in September. I recommended a few in the "Goes Well With" below.
