Glossy Abelia

Glossy abelia is a vigorous, semievergreen shrub with dark green foliage and pinkish-white flowers that perfume the air from midsummer to mid-fall. Capable of being a freestanding shrub or informal hedge in an area with full sun and well-drained soil, glossy abelia does very well fan-trained against a sunny wall in colder areas. Expect it to grow to 10 feet tall and 12 feet wide.
