Abelia x grandiflora ‘Edward Goucher’
Sorry, this product is sold out!
A lovely flowering shrub, with glossy, bronze on the early growth, with pink flowers, it is a medium sized shrub that blooms for a long period in late summer. This shrub is tough and hardy against frosts, liking a lightly acidic soil. If the pruning is done well with attention to detail then Abelia like others pruned in this group give the most back of all the shrubs. The new growth that comes after pruning from the base of the plant gives a vibrant and very attractive form. The stems form long uninterrupted growth from top to bottom, making lovely arching stems that bloom incredibly at the start of Summer.
