Abelia Rose CreekScientific Name: Abelia x grandiflora 'Rose Creek'
Best Planted In Zone: 6-9
Rose Creek is a densely foliated dwarf, rounded shrub with arching branches. It is primarily grown for its masses of long-lasting flowers but also has nice foliage year-round. Its small ovate leaves are glossy and dark green. In cold weather, the foliage develops attractive burgundy hues. Fragrant tubular white flowers are ½" long and form in loose clusters that cover the branch tips throughout the growing season but are heaviest early on. The delicate, white blossom blooms from a base of pink leaves creating the impression of a bi-color bloom. It is deer resistant and its flowers attract bees and butterflies. Rose Creek reaches a mature height of 2-3 feet and 3-4 width. USDA ZONES: Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9.
