Abelia x grandiflora ‘Kaleidoscope’
Kaleidoscope Abelia (Abelia x grandiflora ‘Kaleidoscope’) brings a dazzling new twist to solid-color foliage. Glossy variegated leaves are splashed with colors of lemon-yellow and lime-green during the summer months, but the display becomes even more vivid in autumn when shades of ruby-red bring color to an otherwise drab winter garden.
As a member of the honeysuckle plant family, it should come as no surprise that Kaleidoscope Abelia has similarly shaped blooms. Its white flowers, sometimes with a hint of blush pink, are trumpet-shaped to hold the sweet nectar that hummingbirds and butterflies find irresistible. But don’t expect to find only a few flowers here and there- Kaleidoscope Abelia is covered in a profusion of blossoms that look like a summer snowstorm. Be sure to plant this shrub where you’ll enjoy the antics of tiny hummers and colorful butterflies flitting from flower to flower!
Dig a hole large enough to accommodate your shrub’s root ball, backfill the soil and water to settle the roots. Generally, the Kaleidoscope Abelia Shrub prefers well-drained soil and full to partial sun (4 to 6 hours of sunlight).
Jade Waves Let your soil dry to the touch down to about 2 inches in between waterings. Once your soil is dry, give your Kaleidoscope Abelia Shrub a deep watering at the base.
Fertilize your shrub at the beginning of every spring with a well-balanced blend and follow label instructions for best results. Pruning
