Abelia x grandiflora Sunrise
Evergreen, glossy foliage covered branches; bronzy new growth. Tubular or bell-shaped flowers in clusters at ends of branches or among leaves. Though small, blossoms are plentiful enough to be showy, mostly during summer and early fall. When blooms drop, they usually leave purplish or copper-colored sepals that provide color into the fall months. Leaves also may take on bronzy tints in fall. Flowers are white to pale pink. Drought tolerant. Plant in full sun. Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.
