Buy Funshine™ Abelia online. Crazy for color? Look no further. Funshine™ Abelia offers richly saturated new growth in tones of bright marmalade-orange and caramel all season long. Lavender purple blooms pepper the branches all summer with characteristic fragrance. This semi-evergreen shrub is an excellent replacement for Bronze Anniversary™ Abelia, as it offers an improved habit and deeper color.
