Abelia Sunny Anniversary® Description
Let the sun shine with Sunny Anniversary abelia! This special Proven Winners selection offers a whole new color for abelia – a cheerful yellow, each bloom graced with a spot of pink at the throat.
Abelia is absolutely unbeatable as a flowering shrub for shaded conditions, and is particularly useful in tricky dry shade. This semi-evergreen (i.e., leaves stay on the ends of the branches through winter) shrub is covered with blooms all summer, which attract butterflies and hummingbirds.
Grow Sunny Anniversary abelia as a flowering hedge, specimen plant, or alongside perennials. You’ll love its easy-going durability and outstanding deer resistance!

Fertilizing: Seldom needed; apply a granular garden or rose fertilizer in early spring if desired
Winterizing: A 2-3" layer of shredded bark mulch is recommended. In colder areas, site away from strong winds.
