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. Add in its elegant habit, attractive seed heads, and orange fall foliage and you have the perfect shrub to showcase your good taste. An unusual addition to shrub or mixed borders, this is a delightful plant to place where its spicy-sweet fragrance can be enjoyed in late May.
