Common Glossy is the standard abelia for this area. It has many cultivars, some of which we carry.
It is semi-evergreen in our Zone 7b, depending on the severity of the winter, multi-branched with fragrant, showy, tubular white blossoms that repeat throughout warm weather.
Glossy Abelia can be used to make a thick floral hedge.
