Description: Rose Creek Abelia is dense and compact and matures into a tidy and elegant summer-flowering shrub. Small, shiny, evergreen leaves become purplish green in cold weather. Clusters of 1/2 inch long, white, tubular flowers appear prolifically at stem ends; flowers will keep appearing until frost. Occasional tip pruning encourages re-blooming. This abelia’s compact habit allows it to fit neatly into any small space or corner. It is drought tolerant once established. Shearing can be done in late winter to keep the plant neat and tidy.
