Lovely. I've never grown Abelia, but often admired them.

This one looks lovely all year round Karen. The leaves have red tints in winter.

I keep this one trimmed quite low in the front garden. The scent is lovely and it is just outside the office window.

I haven't heard of this before, it looks lovely and has lots of year round interest by the sound of it.

I have grown a few of them and don't get a scent from any of them. A. x grandiflora itself is hardy enough (last winter) but I have seen 'Confetti' completely defoliated and very sad. All very long flowering. A 'must have' shrub for any garden.
