The Apple Perfection® Abelia is a stunning shrub that produces pure white blooms that contrast strongly against its glossy green foliage. Botanically called, Abelia hybrid '00-bc-47-7r', Apple Perfection® needs little ongoing care as it naturally keeps its compact shape. Pollinator-friendly flowers develop from the spring onwards. A mature height of 4 to 5 feet makes this abelia a versatile shrub for an array of garden uses. 

The Apple Perfection® Abelia is a semi-evergreen, mounding shrub that is suitable for growing in zones 6 to 9. The flowers of Apple Perfection® will be a magnet for bees, butterflies and hummingbirds over the spring and summer months. It demonstrates high deer and pest resistance. This shrub is perfect for growing in a large container as a specimen or for adding color to a border; it also makes a lovely low hedge. 

Apple Perfection® Abelia Care

The Apple Perfection® Abelia grows well in full sun to partial shade. It favors average to fertile soil with good drainage and can cope with dry spells once established. Regular irrigation is needed after planting and for the first growing season at least to help it form a good root system. Even though abelias are generally light feeders, a slow-release shrub fertilizer applied in early spring will help give it a boost. 

The Apple Perfection® Abelia is best pruned for size and shape in late winter before new growth appears. That being said, any stray or wayward shoots can be cut back as required during the growing season.

Apple Perfection® Abelia Spacing

When fully grown, the Apple Perfection® Abelia can reach a size of 4 to 5 feet tall and wide. Plant shrubs about 3 feet apart for hedging, or wider for a more defined shape.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
