Sweet Emotion® Abelia: PP27,370

  • Fragrant white and pink flowers in spring
  • Attracts butterflies
  • Deer resistant
  • Hardiest abelia available

Sweet Emotion® Abelia is just the shrub to kickstart your heart - and your landscape. It's the hardiest abelia yet, growing where no abelia could grow before: in chilly USDA zone 4. It's also the most fragrant of any abelia, with white and pink spring blooms that perfume the air with the scent of jasmine.
