Mardi Gras Glossy Abelia is a compact evergreen shrub with small variegated foliage and lightly arching branches.  The green leaves with cream edging emerge with a bright pink flush on bright red stems that turn brown as they age. The variegated edges earn a golden bronze tone in fall.  Small, softly fragrant shell pink flowers dust the plant from summer into fall attracting bees and butterflies.  Flowers best in full sun and rich, moist, well-drained soils.  Very drought tolerant once established.
