‘Canyon Creek’ Abelia sports new leaves in spring with a coppery orange to peachy salmon tint that turns to a yellow-green during the summer. From mid summer well into fall abundant clusters of fragrant, nectar-rich tubular white flowers will have the butterflies and hummingbirds thanking you for planting this one. Fall brings coppery foliage color that contrasts beautifully with the rose pink calyxes. Canyon Creek has demonstrated high resistance to heat, humidity and disease, and when established is exceptionally drought tolerant. Oh...and deer, rabbits and insects won't touch it. A fine selection for landscape borders and home foundation plantings.
