📚 Abelia Care Guide

Abelia is a flowering plant, with shrubs of the honeysuckle family having opposite leaves. It has white, red, or pink flowers, and is one of the easiest and most versatile plants for your garden, often called as tough plant. This plant attracts hummingbirds with its tubular blossoms. Ideal to bigger pots or containers in yards or gardens with partial shade to full sun.
Abelia details
💧️ Water - Medium Water
Moderate Water Needs
Abelia requires a moderate amount of water. You will want to allow the top few inches of soil dry in between waterings. As a general rule of thumb, depending on where you have planted and how much light your Abelia receives, you may need to water once a week.

Growing Indoors
If you are growing indoors or in a container, you can always check the moisture of the soil by using your thum or finger. Stick it in the soil -- if it is dry, then you will likely want to water your Abelia.

Pot selection is also important to keep your Abelia from getting too wet. It is important to select a pot with plenty of drainage holes as this will allow excess water to train out of the pot rather than to just sit on the bottom. Drainage holes also allow air to get into the soil from the bottom of the pot. Using a terracotta pot or another type of pot made of a permeable material can also help keepAbelia from getting too wet. Terracotta and other similar materials allow water to wick away from the soil faster than they would in a plastic pot.

Growing Outdoors
If you are growing Abelia outdoors, the amount of light your plant is receiving is key to determining how often to water your plant. Plants that require moderate water, generally do best if they can get some respite from the sun during the day as it can dry out the soil fairly quickly. If you have planted in a sunny area, you will likely need to water this plant more often than if it is planted in a shady area. The type of soil you plant in is also important. Sandy and loamy soils tend to dry out much quicker. You can always amend soil with organic material such as peat moss or compost to encourage moisture retention.

☀️ Light - Direct Sun
Direct Sunlight (Full Sun)
Abelia thrives best in direct sunlight or full sun meaning that it loves at least 6-8 hours of bright direct light.

If growing outdoors, you will want to plant Abelia in an area that receives sunlight throughout the day. If growing indoors, place near a South-facing window for ideal conditions. South-facing windows receive the most amount of direct light everyday.
