Description How to Grow Delivery

This dwarf Abelia is perfect for small spaces or container growing. Abelia zanderi 'Little Richard' forms a ball-shaped shrub composed of arching branches clothed in semi-evergreen leaves. The foliage emerges bright red in spring and matures to a glossy, rich green. From July until the first frosts, 'Little Richard' is smothered in abundant clusters of white, tubular flowers. Like other Abelias, it’s great for attracting beneficial pollinators to wildlife-friendly gardens. Maximum height and spread: 60-90cm (2-3ft).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
