Description

Mardi Gras Abelia adds a sweet and simple pop of color to any landscaping design. During the warm season, the variegated foliage transitions from light green to creamy white with pink tinted tips. The cooler seasons grace the shrub with a charming golden hue. An abundance of white, slightly fragrant flowers are produced during late spring to fall. These fragrant flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds.

With a beautiful spectrum of pale green, creamy white, and blushing pink, this plant is literally a Margi Gras of pigments. Not only is it versatile in the area you plant it in, but this plant is frost, drought, heat and deer resistant. Plant in Part shade to full sun.

With little maintenance, the Mardi Gras Abelia can go a long way. On occasion water shoots will develop, keep these trimmed up to maintain the roundness of the plant. To get the best results and color out of your Mardi Gras 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 bright pastel color 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!

How To Care

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

Sun: Full sun for best blooming

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.

Mardi Gras Abelia - Life of the Party

We were thrilled with the quality and fullness of this Mardi Gras Abelia. It was our first plant from Planting Tree and we are actually going to order another.

Very good birthday present for my daughter's Virginia yard

Excellent. The Mardi Gras Abelia arrived in good shape, very promptly in plenty of time for my daughter's birthday. She is very pleased with the appearance and planted it in a prominent place near her entry door. Thank you!

Unique and beautiful

Packaging could have been better as top branches broken on one plant but plants very healthy and am looking forward to the pistachio hydrangea I purchased from you blooming as they are grouped together. I pray the voles leave them alone.

Beautiful shrubs

The abelias that I purchased were pack extremely well. The shrubs are beautiful. The coral bells were packaged well, also, but had some rough handling in transport. I will definitely order from you again.
