ABELIA x grandiflora 'Sherwoodii'
Glossy Abelia, Sherwood Glossy Abelia
Glossy abelia ‘Sherwood’ is a dense, rounded shrub grown for its masses of long-lasting flowers and compact habit. It is evergreen in the warmer climates, semi-evergreen in cooler areas. Glossy abelia ‘Sherwoodii’s’ leaves are glossy, small, dark green, ovate with occasional small teeth. Foliage tinges purple and bronze in cold weather. The flowers cover the tips of the branches throughout the growing season in clusters of small, tubular, five-lobed, fragrant, white flowers with bronze calyces (outer whorl of petals) which persist longer than the flowers and are very showy. Sherwoodii is compact and produces a nice vase-shaped plant.
Plant glossy abelia in full sun to partial shade and acid to neutral, well-drained soil. It has surprising drought tolerance in partly shady locations. Glossy abelia prunes well and is easily propagated by hardwood cuttings. A popular landscape shrub with beautiful, graceful branches which works well for foundation plantings, hedges or mass plantings.
