Abelia Gold Jewel is a lovely compact and neat semi-evergreen shrub grown mostly for its attractive glossy pure gold leaves that become copper bronze in autumn and winter. From late summer till mid-autumn, mildly fragrant, trumpet-shaped flowers in pale pink and white cover the ends of its branches, adding to its attractiveness. Small in size, this beautiful tidy plant is perfect for small yards and city gardens, and ideal for growing in containers. It prefers sunny, sheltered locations and moist, well-drained soil. Being very resilient, generally pest-free and disease-free, it is very easy to maintain and requires minimal pruning. It is tolerant to frost, but its attractive golden foliage needs to be sheltered from harsh winds. It should be watered regularly. Abelia 'Gold Jewel' is a hybrid between the species L. chinensis and L. uniflora.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

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).
