Soil

Abelia are adaptable to a range of soil types and will tolerate periods of dry soil. Best growth is in moist, well-drained soils; benefits from mulch in the lansdcape.

Pruning

Prune in early spring if necessary. Trimming in summer removes flowers but will encourage colorful new growth.

Uses

Abelia is an excellent choice for general landscaping. May be used as a specimen, low hedge, or in perennial gardens/mixed plantings.

Growing Tips

The hotter your location, the more Tres Amigos will benefit from some shade.
