No regular pruning is required with abelias although they can be trimmed to shape after flowering. Old and thin growth of evergreen species should also be removed after flowering, For deciduous species this should be done in February.

It did have a scent, but not as strong as the jasmine. You had to have the flower right under your nose to tell. Lol. @cyndi

Softwood and GreenwoodCuttings. Softwood cuttingsare taken from the first blush of plant growth in the spring. In the case of glossy abelia, take young fast-growing softwood tips about 3 to 6 inches long with a few leaves attached, and then place tips in a moist potting medium kept at 65 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit. For abelia

@cyndi I just read I need to cut back the old canes. It'll be interesting to see what happens next year. I kept pruning it at the wrong time and taking all the future flowers off. 😞

Here's the bloom on one of my mystery plants. It likes to cascade... And it's a tall bush.

It looks like a Weigela. They are beautiful.

I found it! It's an #abelia , not #weigela ... Which explains why I'm not getting many flowers. I keep pruning the plant at the wrong time! :(
