Pruning: The Twist of Lime Abelia generally requires minimal pruning. However, if necessary, prune lightly in late winter or early spring to shape the shrub and remove any dead or damaged branches.

Fertilization: Apply a balanced slow-release fertilizer in early spring to promote healthy growth and flowering. Choose a fertilizer specifically formulated for shrubs and follow the manufacturer's instructions for application rates.

Winter Protection: In USDA hardiness zones 6-9, the Twist of Lime Abelia exhibits excellent hardiness. However, if your region experiences severe winters, consider providing a layer of mulch around the base of the shrub to insulate the roots and protect them from freezing temperatures.


When planting the Twist of Lime Abelia, select a location that receives full to partial sun for optimal growth and foliage coloration. Prepare the soil by incorporating organic matter and ensuring good drainage. Dig a hole slightly larger than the root ball, place the plant in the hole, and backfill with soil. Gently firm the soil around the base of the shrub and water thoroughly. If planting in a pot, choose a container with drainage holes and use a well-draining potting mix. Ensure the container has adequate space for the root system to grow. Water regularly during the establishment period and maintain moist but not waterlogged soil.

The Twist of Lime Abelia thrives in full sun to partial shade conditions. Aim to provide it with at least 4-6 hours of direct sunlight daily for optimal growth and vibrant foliage coloration. Water the plant regularly, especially during dry periods, ensuring the soil remains evenly moist. Deep watering when the top inch of soil feels dry is recommended. Avoid overwatering to prevent waterlogged soil, as this can negatively affect the plant's health.
