Abelia Confetti Conti is a small, compact, slow-growing, mound-forming, semi-evergreen shrub with lovely, variegated foliage. Long, ovate, pointed, dark green leaves have creamy-white margins with pink hues in autumn and winter. Tiny, funnel-shaped, white to pale pink flowers bloom from July to October. Attractive to bumblebees. Abelia Confetti Conti is not a demanding plant. It can grow in a wide range of soil conditions, but prefers fertile, humus-rich, moist, well-drained soils. It thrives in full sun or partial shade. Best flowering occurs in full sun. It can withstand frost, but needs to be sheltered form harsh, winter winds. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require much pruning. Abelia × grandiflora is a cross between A. chinensis and A. uniflora. It’s an attractive, compact, long-blooming, colourful shrub, great for small, informal, cottage, and urban gardens. Perfect for beds, shrub borders, and wall-side borders. Suitable for growing in containers.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
