Abelia Tricolor Charm is a small, compact, long-flowering, semi-evergreen shrub with glossy, oval, bright green leaves with irregular, creamy to pink margins, and abundance of lovely, fragrant, trumpet-shaped, white flowers blooming from mid-summer till the first frosts. Attractive to butterflies and bees. Abelia Tricolor Charm prefers average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun, but is adaptable to other soil types. Best flowering occurs in full sun. It is resistant to frost, but needs to be sheltered from cold, drying winds. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require much pruning. Very easy to grow. Abelia Tricolor Charm is a wonderful ornamental shrub with attractive tricolour foliage and lovely flowers blooming until first frosts. It is perfect as a specimen plant or planted in groups in small informal, cottage, urban, and wildlife gardens. Excellent for shrub borders, wall-side borders, low hedges and screens. Suitable for growing in pots and containers.

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).
