description for "Screeners: Abelia 'Edward Goucher'"

Abelia 'Edward Goucher' blooms purple-pink flowers that bloom and attract butterflies all summer long until frost. Leaves are light green and not as shiny as glossy abelia (A. x grandiflora), but it is showier in flower. A real full-season plant! -- edited by dtd pbcouchman

History:

Abelia 'Edward Goucher' is a cross between A. x grandiflora and A. schumannii made by Edward Goucher himself in 1911.
