Abelia x Grandiflora 'Little Richard'

Little Richard Abelia

Little Richard Abelia (Abelia x Grandiflora 'Little Richard') is an evergreen, broadleaf shrub. This compact plant will not grow larger than about 3 feet around, forming quickly into a mounded shrub. Little Richard blooms from spring throughout the summer with an abundance of fragrant white flowers that are an attractant for butterflies, and its glossy green foliage becomes a tangerine pink in the fall. This plant prefers partial to full sun and regular watering, and is deciduous in colder areas. Its extensive root system make it a good choice for exposed seacoasts.
