 About Mardi Gras Abelias Minimize
The Mardi Gras Abelia is a low spreading shrub with a compact growth habit.  It can reach up to 3 feet in height and can spread up to 5 feet.
  
 Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips Minimize
During the first growing season, have a regular watering schedule, so the Abelia will establish a deep, extensive root system.

For the best results, feed with a general purpose fertilizer before the Abelia flowers in the spring.

Mardi Gras Abelias should be sheared once a year after flowering to keep appearance.
  
 Interesting Notes Minimize
Discovered in North Carolina by nurseryman Rick Crowder.
  
 Flowers & Foliage Minimize
The Mardi Gras Abelia has uniquely colored flowers.  When new growth comes in during the spring the flowers have dark pink buds that eventually turn white.  The flowers bloom through summer and autumn.

The foliage is semi evergreen, meaning warmer climates it is evergreen and in colder climates it is not.  The leaves are variegated with a dark green color in the middle surrounded by its whitish tips.  The new growth foliage in the spring have pinkish tips.
  
 Uses Minimize

Mardi Gras Abelias can be used effectively as a container plant, mass planting, or a foundation plant.
