Abelia 'Edward Goucher' is a hybrid between Abelia × grandiflora and Abelia schumannii. It is developed in 1911. by Edward Goucher of the United States Department of Agriculture. It’s a broadleaf semi-evergreen shrub with reddish branches, glossy, dark green leaves that turn purplish in autumn, and small lilac-pink trumpet-shaped flowers with bronze-tinged calyx lobes. Abelia 'Edward Goucher' is very easily grown in average, medium moist, well-drained soil. It thrives in full sun and is resilient to pests and diseases. Needs pruning in late winter or early spring, and hard pruning every 3 or 4 years. This compact, bushy shrub with fragrant pink flowers is perfect for cottage or urban gardens, for planting in beds and borders, and for growing in containers. Its elegantly arching branches makes it a great specimen plant. It can be used for informal hedges but may lose its elegant appearance if formally shaped.

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).
