Abelia - Bronze Anniversary™ Abelia

Seasons of color! The foliage emerges a unique bronze-orange color and then matures to an attractive bright yellow and lime green as the season progresses. Bronze Anniversary™ is a very strong bloomer with white flowers that emerge in spring and re-blooms throughout the summer. Provides constant foliage interest in the landscape. Looks spectacular when used as specimen plant, or in decorative patio containers. Semi-evergreen in the southern states.
