Abelia mosanensis

FRAGRANT ABELIA

Buy Fragrant Abelia online. Fragrant Abelia has a rich and wonderful fragrance, that rises from beautiful pink & white flowers. The fragrance is better than a Lilac! The blooms adorn this plant from late May to early June. The glossy summer foliage turns an attractive orange-red in autumn. We have never seen any tip die back on this plant even in years when the other Abelia cultivars are killed to the ground.
