Abelia Radiance is a small, naturally compact, ball-shaped, semi-evergreen shrub with arching, vivid red branches. Glossy, oval, light green leaves, with creamy white margins, emerge in spring and slowly turn silvery green with creamy yellow margins later on. It is naturally compact and maintains its density and colour throughout the year. Its prolonged flowering, from May to October, and beautiful, mildly fragrant, trumpet-shaped white flowers that attract butterflies, makes this shrub even more desirable. Abelia Radiance is easily grown in average, well-drained soils. It thrives in a sunny, sheltered position and requires very little maintenance. It is drought resistant, and generally pest-free and disease-free. Perfect for pots and planters, but also for low informal hedges and flower borders. It is an excellent addition to any garden.

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).
