Abelia x grandiflora ‘Francis Mason' is also known as the golden abelia. The leaves are often the colour of pure gold, and sometimes speckled yellow and green. You can expect noticeable bronze colours during low temperatures. The slender branches of beautifully coloured leaves last well in the vase, making them popular with flower arrangers. This shrub is often used to form medium-sized hedges. The flowers are the same as those of A. x grandiflora.
