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.
Size: 4'–6' high x 4'–6' wide; hardy to zone 5.
Abelia mosanensis (S-0768)

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! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
