A dense fountain of flowers!
Beautybush is best known for its vigorous fountain-like growth habit, and gorgeous clusters of fragrant, bell-shaped, abelia-like pink flowers with yellow throats. This deciduous shrub remains a beauty in winter thanks to its pale gray-brown bark shedding from its stems in large ragged strips. The perfect specimen, border, or background shrub!

Provide full to partial sun. Insufficient sun will cause growth issues.
Prune to control growth as necessary for shape, size, and density.
It's best to do any heavy pruning and trimming during winter dormancy, or immediately after flowering. It's best to trim in the early summer (after flowering) as plants bloom on the previous season's wood, so late winter pruning may prevent some blooms. We suggest cutting around 20% of the old stems off near the base when trimming in an effort to prevent the plant from getting too thick and dense.
Water regularly after planting until established, or in periods of drought.
Fertilizations will accelerate growth and keep your beautybush well fed. We suggest using our slow release fertilizer, or something similar such as a suitable fertilizer stake.
