Abelia chinensis is a species of Abelia described by Robert Brown. The plant inhabits China, Taiwan and Japan.[1] It has reddish stems and glossy, small leaves that become reddish-brown before autumn. It is one of the most cold-resistant species within the genus.
Its simplified-form flowers are funnel-shaped, white, and its pink sepals remain long after flowering.
Abelia chinensis is commonly cultivated in China[1] and is also used elsewhere.[2]
