 Description Minimize

'Rose Creek' is perhaps the densest and most compact form of Abelia to date. This attractive shrub makes a tidy and elegant summer flowering shrub. Evergreen leaves are shiny and become purple in cold weather. Tubular white flowers are 1/2" long and form in loose clusters. Occasional tip pruning encourages blooming until fall frost.

  
 Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips Minimize

Rose Creek' Abelia is easy to grow, and adapts to most conditions. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer.

Foliage color and flowering are best in full sun.

To help Rose Creek maintain a dense compact appearance, prune yearly in the very early spring just before the new growth begins.

  
 Interesting Notes Minimize
Abelias are adored by butterflies bringing these beauties to any place planted. 2005 Georgia Gold Medal Winner. Once established, its very drought & deer-resistant.
 
  
 Flowers & Foliage Minimize
Rose Creek is a wonderfully compact cultivar with evergreen foliage that emerges with a slight pink cast from red stems then deepens to a glossy green and turns slightly purple in winter. The fragrant white tubular flowers appear from late spring into fall and are very attractive to pollinators. Each flower emerges from a base of pink modified leaves (calyx) which remain after the flowers fade giving the plant a two-tone blooming appearance.
  
 Uses Minimize

Use Rose Creek Abelia as a foundation shrub in areas where a compact plant is needed. It's also a great plant to use along walkways or mass planted for a low hedge. Due to its small size, it makes a wonderful container plant mixed with perennials or seasonal annuals.
