Looking for a dwarf, easy care evergreen shrub that flowers and provides year long color. Kaleidoscope is as versatile as it is colorful, with chameleon-like foliage that changes with the seasons, from golden yellow in spring to orange-red in fall. This is the perfect plant for your landscape.
A striking kaleidoscope of color from Spring to Fall! In early spring leaves emerge on bright red stems with lime-green centers and bright yellow edges. By late spring, the entire bush is covered with soft pink buds that open to white blooms. The blooms keep coming well into autumn. When summer arrives, the yellow matures to golden and the variegation does not burn or scorch in the hottest of weather. In fall and winter the foliage color deepens to shades of orange and fiery red. Kaleidoscope Abelia® is deer resistant and drought tolerant.
