This is a sprig of Abelia Grandiflora that I photographed this morning because it looked so beautiful in the sunshine.
Even though we planted it seven years or so ago, I didn’t in fact know the name of the shrub till this evening, when I looked it up on the internet.
It’s in flower all year so doesn’t change much, which is probably why I’ve overlooked it.
Being a ‘winter interest’ shrub would, for me, be no recommendation because I’ve always thought the description means – boring generally but marginally less boring in winter by comparison.
I think I changed my mind today, though.
