Abelia x 'Rose Creek'


White blooms, grows 2-3' ht x 3-4' sp

Rose Creek Abelia has a low mounding growth habit, fragrant white flowers, and a long bloom period (May to frost). The plant grows 2 to 3 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet wide, making it an excellent choice for foundation plantings, containers, or low-growing hedges.  Rose Creek Abelia has evergreen leaves that emerge with a pinkish cast that turns dark green in summer. Below each flower, are small, light pink, modified leaves called the calyx, which remain on the plant after the flowers fade.  Rose Creek is drought-tolerant, deer-resistant, and seldom bothered by pests. It is also highly attractive to butterflies and bees. Abelias are drought tolerant and tolerate full to part sun but do best in full sun.
