In summer, the shiny leaves of Ruby Anniversary Abelia (Abelia chinensis 'Keiser') are joined by fragrant light pink blossoms. All this fragrance and seasonal interest are packed into an easy-care shrub typically ignored by deer and rabbits. Ruby Anniversary can take more cold than most abelias and still produce the sweet-smelling flowers on gracefully arching branches. You will love the fragrant blooms almost as much as the butterflies they attract.

In spring, new glossy red leaves begin to appear on the abelia, and eventually turn shiny dark green. So, this plant packs plenty of color early each season even before the flowers appear in late summer to fall. You also can enjoy the fragrant blooms of your Ruby Anniversary Abelia by cutting some stems for delicate pink color in a flower arrangement. Ruby Anniversary grows to nearly 6 feet tall once mature and spreads in a mounding form to about 5 feet across. This makes it an excellent choice as a screen or a focal plant in the middle or back of a garden bed.

Ruby Anniversary Abelia Care

Abelias need partial to full sun and have average water and soil needs. The only other care Ruby Anniversary Abelia needs is a pruning for shape in early spring just as new leaves begin to emerge on the plant. If the shrub was damaged in winter, add a granular fertilizer designed for woody plants to help it along in spring. Ruby Anniversary is cold hardy to zone 5 and can take heat up to zone 9.

Ruby Anniversary Abelia Spacing

The more Ruby Anniversary Abelia shrubs in your landscape, the more of their sweet fragrance you can enjoy. If you plant a mass of these abelias in a group or as a border, be sure to space them about 5 to 6 feet apart to account for their mature size.

Interesting Fact(s) - Ruby Anniversary abelia was developed in Ossining, New York by Susan Keiser.

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.
