Abelia ‘Kaleidoscope’ puts a new spin on landscapes

Supplier News

The new shrub has received a number of industry accolades.

| November 7, 2010

Bred specifically for its leaf color and habit, ‘Kaleidoscope’ features dramatically defined variegation exploding in varying combinations of green, red, yellow and orange throughout the year. In early spring the leaves emerge on bright red stems with lime-green centers and bright yellow edges.

When summer arrives, the yellow matures to golden and the variegation does not burn or scorch in the hottest of weather.

In fall and winter the foliage color deepens to shades of orange and fiery red, and the winter foliage hangs on better than other Abelias.

This mounded, tightly branched shrub stays under 3 feet tall and about as wide. Reported to be the longest-blooming of all the Abelias, by late spring ‘Kaleidoscope’ is covered with soft pink buds that open to white blooms that keep coming well into autumn.

‘Kaleidoscope’ has received a number of industry accolades, including being named a
Plantarium Bronze Medal Winner and a University of Tennessee Gardens Shrub Category Winner.
