Abelia Magic Daydream - Abelia

Abelia Magic Daydream

Abelia

Common Name: Abelia Magic Daydream Latin Name: Abelia x grandiflora 'Magic Daydream' Soil: Fertile, well-drained soil Position: Full sun Flowering period/colour: June to October/ White and pink Hardiness: Half hardy Eventual height/spread: 0.6m/0.9m Special features: Sweetly scented flowers that change from white to pink. The ‘Magic Daydream’ is a wonderful little shrub with so much to offer due to its ever-changing interest throughout the growing season. The leaves alone are a kaleidoscope of colours: their main colour is dark green and they have variegated cream margins, plus new leaves have a rosy blush, making this a wonderfully colourful plant based on the foliage alone. To add to this, from June to October an abundance of sweetly scented flowers appear and these start out white and mature to pink. The star-shaped flowers sit nestled amongst the glossy foliage and give off a delightful fragrance, making this a great choice for sensory planting. If you want to attract more bees and butterflies to your garden then this Abelia will do the trick.  Eventually the 'Magic Daydream' will grow to have a compact, bushy habit, making it the perfect choice for planting in a pot on a sunny patio. If you want a planting partner then we love this alongside the golden green foliage of the Spiraea japonica 'Golden Princess'. Give this Abelia protection in winter if you are in a colder area.

Acacia dealbata

Mimosa Tree

Acacia dealbata provides a vibrant burst of sunshine during the winter months as its highly distinctive flowers appear in January. The flowers resemble small, fluffy spheres and they are golden yellow in colour; they are highly fragrant and their sweet scent can be a real treat for the senses over the winter months. In fact, the essence of the flowers, called ‘cassie’, is used in perfumes and fragrances around the world. Aside from human uses, bees and insects love the Mimosa flowers too, and it’s a valuable source of late winter fuel for the bees in particular. Aside from the floral interest, the foliage offers a healthy dose of year-round colour. The pinnate leaves are large with feathery leaflets: the foliage colour is a glaucous blue-green, but can sometimes be silvery green. The leaves make the perfect foil for the vibrant winter flowers. In terms of its habit, the Acacia dealbata will grow to have widely spaced branches and it will become a small-medium sized tree. This Australian native is half-hardy, so it will need some protection in exposed sites. An ideal situation would be to plant it in a sheltered spot against a south-facing wall for optimum protection. If you want a planting partner, we would recommend the Eucalyptus Gunnii as it also has glaucous blue foliage. Equally, the Cytisus Battandieri works really well due to its vivid floral summer display, as you get bright yellow flowers in winter from the Acacia and vibrant yellow flowers in summer from the Cytisus.
