Radiance Abelia (Abelia x grandiflora ‘Radiance’)
Dwarf, broad-leaved evergreen Radiance Abelia (Abelia x grandiflora ‘Radiance’ PP# 21929) provides outstanding landscape value. Enjoy fragrant white blooms all summer time long; and wonderfully variegated foliage.
Part of the Southern Living Plant Collection, Radiance is a beautiful evergreen with incredible changing foliage that really “pops” against new red stems. New leaves are green and soft yellow, and they age to silvery-green edged with cream.
These petite plants stay compact, spreading a bit wider than they are tall—a great size for small space gardens. Insect and deer-resistant, they are evergreen in all but the coldest zones rated, where they behave as a semi-evergreen.
Radiance Abelia grows well in either full sun or part shade, with at least four hours of sunlight each day. They’ll need well-drained soil and a moderate amount of supplemental water the first season and during dry weather.
