The Ed Goucher Abelia is a glossy green compact shrub that will delight your senses for a longer period of time. During the warm season, the foliage is dark green and exhibits beautiful lilac colored flowers that display an orange speckled throat. The cooler seasons graces the shrub in a bronze-purple hue, making this shrub even prettier for the fall seasons! An abundance of lilac, slightly fragrant flowers are produced during late summer to fall.

Not only is it versatile in the area you plant it in, but this plant is frost, drought, heat and deer resistant. What more can you ask for in a shrub!

With a little maintenance the Ed Goucher Abelia can go a long way. To get the best results and color out of your Ed Goucher Abelia it is advised to plant 5-6 ft. apart to allow room for mature growth, plant in full sun for best color results, and provide a slow release, high nitrogen fertilizer in the spring.

This eye-catching shrub provides an abundance of lilac, orange accented flowers with little care and will definitely add curb appeal to any home or place of business. Add some Soft Touch Holly or Green Mountain Boxwood shrubs into the mix for a great look!

Caring for Ed Goucher Abelia

Planting Time: Any time of the year taking care to avoid temperature extremes, especially the height of summer.

Soil: Very adaptable, but fertile, well drained is ideal

Water: Deeply water when newly planted and once or twice weekly during establishment. Once established, only minimal watering is needed and generally only during extended periods of dry, hot weather.

Fertilization: A fertilizer for flowering shrubs like Rhododendrons will work great for Abelias. The best times to fertilize are early spring and/or early summer.

Pruning: Abelias do not generally require pruning, but if pruning is desired winter is best.
