Looking for the most spectacular trees and shrubs with eye-catching flowering one tends to forget the smaller ones, which are none the less diligent or beautiful. Just like abelias. These semi-evergreen, exceptionally evergreen shrubs are maintenance-free plants of high value owing to its profuse flowering.

Sherwood is a new variety of abelia with snow white, funnel-shaped flowers with a nice scent. They come out in early summer and continue until the first frost. Its glossy leaves are soft green, ovate and pointed. Unlike its parent plant – abelia x grandiflora – this one has shorter branches and forms a low, neat, and dense shrub. No pruning needed.

Abelias are soil tolerant but will thrive in good, well-drained soil. Find them a location in full sun and, if possible, sheltered from drying winds. Fully hardy to -24°C (USDA zone 6).
