Description

Ruby Anniversary Abelia (Abelia chinensis 'Ruby Anniversary') is a rounded, spreading, multi-stemmed shrub in the honeysuckle family. Typically grows on gracefully arching branches to 2-4' tall. Features clusters of white-tinged-pink, bell-shaped flowers blooming over a long and continuous late spring to fall bloom period. Semi-evergreen dark green leaves turn purplish-bronze in autumn persisting until 10 degrees F or so. Wood is hardy to 0 degrees F. In years where the stems die to the ground in winter but the plant survives, flowering will still occur on new growth. Ruby Anniversary® abelia is an unusually hardy abelia, thriving even in zone 5. People love abelia because it blooms summer through fall with very fragrant flowers that attract butterflies and hummingbirds, plus it's shade-tolerant and resistant to both deer and rabbits. New growth emerges glossy red and ages to a handsome dark green. Graceful, arching habit makes it a perfect choice for late season fragrance in your perennial garden, foundation plantings, or any place you can enjoy its flowers and fragrance often. All Proven Winners® plants are legally propagated, healthy and vigorous, true to name, and tagged with color pictures and growing information.
