The Twist of Lemon™ Abelia is a dense, rounded evergreen shrub, growing not much more than 3 feet high, but spreading outwards 5 feet or more. The leaves are bronze red when new, turning to a bright shade of lemon yellow. Older leaves are chartreuse green, and in fall the whole plant becomes bronzy pink, staying like that through winter. This bush is ideal for filling beds or creating attractive borders. It can be trimmed into a tight, perfect hedge, or left to grow more casually, looking just as attractive.

  • Leaves begin red, turning lemon yellow
  • Mature foliage is chartreuse, then bronzy pink for fall and winter
  • Clusters of white flowers are sweetly fragrant
  • Blooms from early summer into fall
  • Perfect for edging large beds or along pathways

The Twist of Lemon™ Abelia will be brightest growing in full sun, but a few hours of shade each day make little difference. It grows well in almost all soils, including urban conditions, if the ground is well-drained. It is drought resistant, but a little water during dry spells, and some spring fertilizer, will give you the densest and most colorful growth. Pests and diseases are normally absent, and deer leave it alone.
