Originating from New Zealand Abelia Francis Mason is a superb compact, spreading, semi – evergreen, medium sized shrub with 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.

When Does Abelia Francis Mason Flower

Small, pink, fragrant, trumpet – like blossoms appear from June to October. The sunnier the position the more flowers are produced, regular dead heading will also encourage the production of more flowers, which are highly attractive to the local bee population and in turn the honey producers amongst us.

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.
