Abelia

Abelia mosanensis full sun  partial shade

Favored by butterflies and garden visitors alike, masses of pink buds and rose-blushed white trumpet-style blooms, exuding the sweetest most delectable Lilac fragrance, precede colorful long lasting calyxes. Loosely arranged upright arching stems and attractive glossy leaves that glow with spectacular oranges and reds in autumn describe the rounded multistemmed frame. Planted as an easily grown informal hedge or hardy medium-sized specimen, this rarely offered Korean native appreciates periodic pruning and adapts to varied soil types and growing conditions, but detests the heat and humidity of the deep south.

Blooms May–June

Size: 4' 0"–6' 0" high x 4' 0"–6' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

You may wish to include one or more of these easily grown herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses, shrubs or trees that wield plenty of October flair.
