ABELIA x grandiflora ‘Edward Goucher’

Abelia –

0089 Glossy abelia ‘Edward Goucher’ is a dense, rounded shrub grown for its masses of long-lasting flowers and lacy foliage. It is evergreen in the warmer climates, semi-evergreen in cooler areas. Glossy abelia ‘Edward Goucher’ leaves are very small, green, ovate with occasional small teeth. Foliage tinges purple, maroon or bronze in cold weather. The flowers cover the tips of the branches throughout the growing season in clusters of small, tubular, five-lobed, fragrant, pink-lavender flowers with orange throats. Edward Goucher is slightly more compact and less hardy than glossy abelia.

Plant glossy abelia in full sun to partial shade and acidic to neutral, well-drained soil. It has surprising drought tolerance in partly shady locations. Glossy abelia prunes well and is easily propagated by hardwood cuttings. A popular landscape shrub with beautiful, graceful branches which works well for foundation plantings, hedges or mass plantings.
