The compact shrub changes hues with the season.

| November 11, 2011

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – Plant Haven's Abelia ‘Kaleidoscope’ is a variegated compact shrub with brilliant foliage providing constantly swirling color throughout the seasons.

In early spring, the leaves emerge with lime-green centers and bright yellow edges on bright red stems. In summer, the yellow matures to gold 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.

Abelia 'Kaleidoscope' is reported to be the longest-blooming of all the Abelias. By late spring the entire bush is covered with soft pink buds that open to white blooms. The blooms keep coming well into autumn. ‘Kaleidoscope’ is an easy to care for versatile plant. It is eye-catching as a container specimen, well-suited as a formal or informal hedge, distinctive as an accent plant and spectacular in mass planting.
