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'–6' high x 4'–6' wide; hardy to zone 5.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!

“As a customer of many years' standing, long before online gardening was even possible, I can testify that the plants from Digging Dog have been consistently healthy and hardy through the years. They are also the biggest plants I've ever received by mail. Enormous root systems!”
