If you fancy growing an Abelia but do not want to spend your time maintaining it, check out the tidy and well-behaved Brilliantina™ Abelia. Botanically called, Abelia x grandiflora 'KEYFLY', this Abelia produces attractive green and white variegated foliage and fragrant white flowers in summer. Growing to 3 to 4 feet tall, the Brilliantina™ Abelia is a versatile mid-sized shrub.

Brilliantina™ is less likely to develop long shoots over the season and tends to keep a neater appearance than other Abelias. It is deer tolerant and either evergreen or semi-evergreen depending on the local climate. Suitable for growing in zones 6 to 9, it can be used for mass planting, forming a low hedge or simply growing as a specimen shrub in a border. 

Brilliantina™ Abelia Care

The Brilliantina™ Abelia performs best when it is grown in full sun to partial sun. It favors a neutral to alkaline, well-drained soil. Water well after planting and for the first couple of growing seasons. Once it is established, it can tolerate some dry periods. Supplementary fertilizer is seldom needed; however, you can give it a boost by applying a general slow-release feed in early spring. 

With a naturally tidy form, minimal ongoing care is required. That being said, you can lightly trim in early spring if desired. It is best to avoid pruning later in the season, as the flowers may be removed. 

Brilliantina™ Abelia Spacing

The Brilliantina™ Abelia can reach a mature size of 3 to 4 feet tall and 3 to 5 feet wide. Space plants from 3 to 5 feet apart, depending on the desired effect. One abelia can be planted in a 16 inch pot.

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.
