Product Information

Transfix your garden guests with a ‘Kaleidoscope’ of colour with this semi-evergreen shrub. Versatile and easy to grow – this remarkable Abelia is a low-growing shrub perfect for filling a border.

With a name like ‘Kaleidoscope’, you already know the journey of colour you will experience when growing this Abelia will be one worth shouting about.

Springtime foliage starts with a mixture of bright yellow and green leaves, which only intensifies through the warmer summer months. The artist palette is stretched even further in autumn, when seasonal shades of orange and red takeover.

An extra layer of intrigue is added across summer and autumn, when dainty, pinkish white blooms burst open from pink buds, each boasting an impressive scent to delight the senses.

Compact in habit, this Abelia forms a neat shrub that is perfect for growing in a pot on the terrace or balcony in a sunny, sheltered position. 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.

Supplied as an established plant in a 2L pot, ready for planting.

Top Tips

Although hardy, this variety is best to be planted in a sheltered position. This will therefore encourage it to retain its glorious coloured leaves through the colder months, in autumn and winter.

Care Information

Planting Advice for Abelia grandiflora:

  • Best grown in well-draining soil in full sun or partial shade - a minimum of six hours of 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 advice:

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

Pruning Advice:

  • 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.
