Maintenance Notes

With its low-growing, neat habit, Pinky Bells™ abelia needs little trimming to stay looking great. Once the plant has been growing a few years, you may want to trim out any dead wood in early spring, just as the new growth begins to appear (this lets you clearly see what is alive and what isn't). If the plant needs pruning, do so in spring.

If you wish, fertilize in early spring with a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants, like a rose fertilizer. 

Plant where it gets at least a few hours of sun each day for the most flowers and the bushiest growth.
