About Kaleidoscope Abelia

Looking for a dwarf, easy-care evergreen shrub that flowers and provides year-long color? Kaleidoscope is as versatile as it is colorful, with chameleon-like foliage that changes with the seasons, from golden yellow in spring to orange-red in fall.

Kaleidoscope Abelia Care

Hardy in USDA Zones 6-9

Plant in Partial to Full Sun for best results.

This Abelia prefers well-draining, rich garden soil. Poor draining soils can often result in root rot.

Water regularly after planting, 2-3 times per week during average weather conditions. However, increased water will be required in times of intense heat and drought. After a growing season or two, your plant will rarely need supplementary water.

Fertilize your Kaleidoscope Abelia in spring with a slow-release Fertilizer to keep your plant well-fed and performing at its best!

*The Kaleidoscope Abelia is a deciduous/semi-evergreen plant and will go dormant during the winter months. When this plant is ordered during the Fall/Winter expect seasonal foliage decline(discoloration, spots, leaf drop) or the plant to arrive completely dormant.*

Kaleidoscope Abelia Spacing Recommendations 

For a seamless planting, plant your Kaleidoscope Abelia 2-3 feet apart from the plant center to plant center. For space between plantings, plant them 3.5+ feet apart.

**Pre-Purchase Disclaimer: Abelia is notorious for being a light rooting plant. Many Abelia that are shipped will have a loose rootball on arrival from the vibrations of shipping.**

    one was very wilted with shallow roots in the soil and the other wasn’t much better. I planted and consistently watered in hopes they would recover…but nope, one is already dead and the other struggling. Too pricey to purchase again. 😥

    I purchased four and one is really struggling. It’s almost dead.

    The only damaged plant I received in my order of four. The others were lush and full. This one had experienced some obvious heat and travel stress. Planted it anyway. It’s struggling but I think it will pull though. Fingers crossed!

    I am very pleased with this abelia, lovely leaves and it is thriving nicely. Can’t wait to see the fall colors, but it’s pretty as is.

    I live in zone 8a and bought 1 Kaleidoscope Abelia from another company in early spring and planted it on the north side of the house with organic fertilizer. It did so well and grew to the mature size in the first season, I bought two more with plans on planting in early fall. All are doing great and bloomed like crazy from early fall through early winter. I was looking forward to the fall foliage colors in the cooler months but it doesn’t seem they got the memo.

    Plants by Mail take great care in packaging their plants. They came in great shape considering the time the shipping took because of Covid 19.

    Abelias are beautiful plants. Getting to see them change color with the seasons, WOW! I have two and I adore them! Thank you, Plantsbymail, for offering me plants that I can’t find elsewhere!
