This attractive compact shrub has glossy silver-variegated leaves tinged with burgundy; tidy, mounded habit and tubular white flowers make this shrub a welcome addition to smaller spaces in the garden

Ornamental Features:

Silver Anniversary Glossy Abelia features dainty clusters of lightly-scented white tubular flowers with shell pink overtones at the ends of the branches from mid spring to early summer. It has attractive creamy white-variegated grayish green foliage. The glossy oval leaves are ornamentally significant and turn an outstanding burgundy in the fall. The fruit is not ornamentally significant. The stems are indian red but aren't particularly outstanding.

Landscape Attributes:

Silver Anniversary Glossy Abelia is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a mounded form. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.

This shrub will require occasional maintenance and upkeep, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. It is a good choice for attracting bees, butterflies and birds to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Silver Anniversary Glossy Abelia is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Accent
  • Mass Planting
  • General Garden Use
  • Container Planting

Plant Characteristics:

Silver Anniversary Glossy Abelia will grow to be about 30 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 4 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.

This shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution.

This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.
