      More Information

      Description We can’t decide what we love most about Funshine abelia – the bright golden foliage or the abundance of purple blooms. It’s the total package, and an ideal way to bring vivacious color to even a shady spot in your garden. Enjoy months of bloom from late spring through fall, with bell-like flowers that attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Like other abelias, it’s quite a tough plant, growing well even in dry shade, and is unbothered by deer, rabbits, or other pests. Funshine abelia is colorful enough to be planted on its own in a flower garden, but it's especially effective planted in groups of 3 or 5 to form a low hedge or bring contrasting color to your home's landscape. Details Botanical name: Abelia x grandiflora 'Minacara1'
      Patent #: USPP 30,430
      Common name: Abelia

      Flower color: Purple
      Foliage color: Yellow
      Season of interest: Spring through Fall
      Bloom time:Summer, fall
      Features:Proven winners, low flammability, heat tolerant, fragrant, dry soils, drought tolerant. deer resistant, best for beginners
      Uses: Specimen, hedge, landscaping, foundation planting
      How To Grow Soil: Any average soil will do; avoid extreme wet or dry conditions. Though it can tolerate some drought, performance is best with regular water
      Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day) to part shade (4-6 hours/day)
      Water: Moderate moisture; tolerates dry conditions once established, but flowering is best when not stressed
      Spacing: 4’ apart
      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.
      Maintenance & pruning:  Blooms on new wood, so can be pruned in spring if desired. However, it naturally takes on a graceful, fountain-like habit that does not require regular pruning. Any errant growth can be removed as needed.

      Not impressed

      Followed all instructions for planting and there has been no growth at all. I don't think they're dead (yet) but I'm not impressed with my plants.

      Love Abelia

      The plant was tiny but very healthy upon arrival. I ordered 3 and they are all growing well even gave me some beautiful little purple blooms! I definitely love Abelia and gladly to have this plant at my garden!

      Replacement shrubs

      The Funshine Abelia that I ordered to replace shrubs lost in the severe winter freeze in Texas, arrived in good shape although they were extremely small for what I paid for them. They are in the ground now for over a month and thriving, growing bigger and even blooming!

      Funshine Abelia

      The Funshine Abelia looked so good.. I ordered another. Every plant I have ordered from Great Gardens has arrived healthy and is doing well. Plants are packaged so well that there is no way they could be damaged in shipping.

      Color of leaves is really pretty.

      Prepared soil and hole for planting as instructed. All 8 that I planted in full sun are healthy and smiling. Can't wait to see the blooms with butterflies and hummingbirds. This is exciting, as the colors are so nice with Trim on house. Needed shorter plants in front of windows.

      You'll have to share pictures with us once they're in bloom! We love seeing our plants in their new homes. Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback, Sally. We appreciate it!
