Abelia x Grandiflora 'Rose Creek'

 

Rose Creek Abelia is an attractive, ornamental evergreen that will have you from the start! Foliage emerges with a lovely pink tint in early spring and evolves into a vibrant, lustrous green. All eyes are drawn in with the contrast of the crimson stems against the amazing glossy, foliage. The Rose Creek Abelia reaches a mature height of 2-3 feet and a mature width of 3-4 feet. As spring transitions into summer, half inch long ivory white tubular flowers make their appearance. Each delicate, white blossom springs forth from a base of pink leaves. Uses include container, mass plantings, foundation, small to large groupings on slopes or in landscape beds and borders. A great deer resistant shrub that attracts butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds so enjoy both the beauty this has to offer and the nature it will attract.

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.
