Product Information

Abelia 'Confetti Conti’ is a wonderful semi-evergreen shrub that will look wonderful in a mixed border with its attractive variegated foliage and lightly scented flowers.

The gorgeous leaves are green with an edging of creamy white and from July until September beautiful, delicately fragranced trumpet-shaped flowers appear in white with a hint of pink.

With its naturally compact growth habit, ‘Confetti Conti’ forms a neat shrub that is perfect for growing in a pot on the terrace or balcony in a sunny, sheltered position. Easy to grow and hardy, it's best grown in the shelter of a wall or towards the back of a border to encourage it to hang on to its leaves for as long as possible.

Planting Advice for Abelia

  • Best grown in well-draining soil in full sun or partial shade - a minimum of 6 hours sun is needed for the best foliage colour.
  • Water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot then refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

Aftercare

  • Water regularly until established.
  • Feed with a general-purpose fertiliser in spring

Pruning Advice for Abelia

  • Prune your abelia in March-April to the desired size, or to keep it compact and dense. Remove any branches that are damaged, dead or misplaced.
