The Rose Creek Abelia is a dense, compact shrub that provides excellent seasonal interest. The foliage is bright green and eventually transitions to a deep purple when the weather begins to cool. Not only is the foliage beautiful, but the stems themselves provide a great contrast with their vivid crimson pigment. An abundance of white, slightly fragrant flowers are produced during late spring to fall on the Rose Creek Abelia bush. In fall the flowers take on a copper-rose color. These fragrant flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds.

The Rose Creek Abelia is a very versatile and hardy plant. From small groupings, mass plantings to containers, this plant brings distinctive charm to any of your landscaping needs. 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 Rose Creek Abelia can go a long way.

To get the best results and color out of the Rose Creek Abelia bush, it is advised to plant 5-6 feet 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 excellent source of seasonal color and interest with little care and will 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 your Rose Creek Abelia 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 the Rose Creek Abelia. The best times to fertilize are early spring and/or early summer.

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

No problems, just need a little encouragement!

I am hoping my two Japanese yew bushes are going to do well. I suppose they are still getting rooted. Nothing is happening above ground, but they are still green. My abelia is lovely but one part seems to be pulling down a bit. I followed all the directions. Any info you can give me would be appreciated. I enjoyed shopping and buying from you.
