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.
Hardy in USDA Zones 6-9
Plant in Full Sun to Part Shade 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.*
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.**
