The Twist of Lime™ Abelia is a compact evergreen shrub reaching 4 to 5 feet tall and wide. It has small glossy leaves that are green with a bold band of golden yellow around the edge, that turns ivory-white in summer and pink in fall and through winter. From summer into fall clusters of pale lilac-pink flowers are carried in profusion, with persistent white calyxes that hold on the plant for weeks after the flowers fall. Butterflies and sometimes hummingbirds are attracted to the fragrant flowers. A colorful low-maintenance shrub for beds and borders, that can be trimmed into a hedge if needed.

  • Bold variegated leaves in yellow turning to white
  • Fragrant lilac-pink flowers from mid-summer into fall
  • Leaves turn pink in fall and through winter
  • Can be trimmed into a colorful hedge
  • Adaptable to varying light and soil conditions

It is best to grow the Twist of Lime™ Abelia in full sun or partial shade, in any well-drained soil that is not too dry. Poorer soil and urban conditions are tolerated, and pests or diseases almost never appear. Deer usually leave it alone too, and some simple pruning or trimming is all the care needed – and even that is optional.
