Abelia Plant Care

Abelia flower best in full sun. Easy growing, low-maintenance with limited pruning. If desired, begin pruning in its third growing season to maintain size and shape. Trimming or shaping should be done promptly after flowering. Abelia may also benefit from a hard shearing every couple of years to keep a neat appearance. Blooms on old wood.
