        Abelia is a reasonably large genus with more than 25 species, they are all shrubs and can be evergreen, deciduous and semi-deciduous.

        Abelia x grandiflora was raised in Italy in the mid 1800s, it is a cross between Abelia chinensis and Abelia uniflora. This new hybrid has become a mainstay in British gardens and there are many cultivars and varieties which have been found from this original hybrid. These have many different attributes from variegated foliage, silver or golden foliage, stronger flower colour, different habits and many other attributes!
        Abelia 'Edward Goucher' is a further hybrid of Abelia x gradiflora and Abelia schumannii and was raised in 1911 in the United States, this has the most different habit of all the varieties with a much more dwarfed habit, darker leaves and much darker purple flowers.
