Abelia is a perennial deciduous shrub. It was first raised in 1886 at the Rovelli nursery at Pallanza (now Verbania), on Lake Maggiore in Italy. This is a rounded, semi-evergreen shrub. It grows up to 6 feet tall. It has ovate, glossy, dark green leaves, which turn purplish-bronze in autumn. The flowers have fragrance. The greatest bloom is usually observed in the late summer, with fruit and seed production starting in summer and continuing until autumn. It is used as an ornamental plant in specimen plantings in gardens.
