Abelia x Edward Goucher is a fabulous garden hybrid, obtained by crossing Abelia x grandiflora and Abelia schumannii. The leaves retain the reddish foliage all summer long. Multiple stems arise from the ground in a vase shape, spreading apart as they ascend into the foliage. It is resistant to frost, but it grows also in Mediterranean to Subtropical climates, like the Canary Islands.
We ship a robust, sun-grown plant, cultivated in a 16-20 cm pot, of variable height of 40-70 cm. This is a fast growing species and it is produced once or twice a year so the specimens can be 40-120 cm tall. We will always try to select a compact robust plant for you. In some cases we will prune the plant before shipping. This is because some plants are too tall to fit in the box and also because the upper branches are too tender, so pruning will be helpful during the transit. It will surely grow back soon because it is a fast growing plant, commonly pruned in gardens. Depending on the season, this plant can be sent bare-rooted, with the roots wrapped in moist sphagnum or perlite. Be prepared to plant it in a pot of at least 18 cm, filled with good garden soil and place it in full sun. We ship worldwide.
