Abelia x grandiflora 'Little Richard'

Abelia x grandiflora 'Little Richard'

Common name glossy abelia
Family caprifoliaceae
Life cycle shrub (Z5-9)
Flowers lime green (summer)
Size 3'
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes medium well-drained soil

Small cultivar of this deciduous shrub, growing only about half as tall as the original hybrids. Attractive glossy leaves supposedly give a good fall show as well. Stems may die back in cold winters, but it should be winter-hardy overall for us.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
