Originating from New Zealand, the Abelia Francis Mason is a superb compact, spreading, semi – evergreen, medium sized shrub.  It has gracefully arching branches from which its glossy rich golden yellow variegated leaves are formed. The young shoots are in an attractive reddish brown. A very adaptable shrub, and could be grown as a focal plant in the border or used to make a low informal, colourful hedge.

Looking After Your Glossy Abelia

Generally pest and disease free, an easy to grow shrub in many if not all locations. A low maintenance shrub which can benefit from a sunny fertile area in all types of garden from informal cottage to a more formal town garden. Pruning is best done during March and April before the flowers buds are formed.

    I just felt that I needed to let you know how pleased we are with the quality of the plants and also the two new plants that you included with the order, totally unexpected and much appreciated.
