Abelia grandiflora Radiance is a variegated form with silvery, green and white foliage. Fragrant white flowers appear from summer to fall. This is a low maintenance shrub with a nice mounding habitat which attracts butterflies.
Abelia grandiflora Kaleidoscope is semi evergreen so will keep most of its foliage in mild winters and only in the coldest years will all the leaves drop. It's compact habit means that it requires no after care and it is as happy at the front of a border as it is in a large patio pot.
