Product Details

Confetti Abelia adds a sweet and simple pop of color to any landscaping design. During the warm season, the variegated foliage is light green with creamy white margins. The cooler seasons graces the shrub with a rosy hue making all the different colors blend together into a handful of confetti!  An abundance of white, slightly fragrant flowers are produced during late summer to fall. Fall brings more color, adding rose and bronze to the mix.

With a beautiful spectrum of pale green, creamy white, and blushing pink this plant is literally a Confetti of pigments. Besides the color, the Confetti Abelia is a very versatile and hardy plant. From small groupings, mass plantings to containers, this plant brings distinctive charm to any of your landscaping needs. Not only is it versatile in the area you plant it in, but this plant is frost, drought, heat and deer resistant. The Confetti Abelia will thrive in full sun to partial shade.

What more can you ask for in a shrub?! With a little maintenance, the Confetti Abelia can go a long way. To get the best results and color out of your Confetti Abelia it is advised to plant 5 feet apart to allow room for mature growth, plant in full sun for best color results, and provide a slow release, high nitrogen fertilizer in the spring.

This eye-catching shrub provides an abundance of pastel color with little care and will definitely add curb appeal to any home or place of business.

How To Care for your new Confetti Abelia

Planting Time:  Any time of the year taking care to avoid temperature extremes, especially the height of summer.

Sun:  Full sun for best blooming

Soil:  Very adaptable, but fertile, well drained is ideal

Water:  Deeply water when newly planted and once or twice weekly during establishment.  Once established, only minimal watering is needed and generally only during extended periods of dry, hot weather.

Fertilization:  A fertilizer for flowering shrubs like Rhododendrons will work great for Abelias.  The best times to fertilize are early spring and/or early summer.

Pruning:  Abelias do not generally require pruning, but if pruning is desired winter is best.  

 

Planting Directions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 1-2 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.

I was amazed at the packing and shipping of this shrub. It was a good size, so I wasn't sure what kind of condition it would arrive in. I don't think I could have purchased one at a nursery or garden center in better condition. It's been about 8 weeks now since I planted it and it is thriving. I would definitely recommend you, and I'm sure I will order from you again on the future.

Happy satisfied and wanting more!
Where have these been and now our neighbors are asking about them. Should we tell them or keep it our little secret? We will be back as we plan to extend our beds. Love TPT and we just "liked" TPT on FB.
