Plant Species of the genus Abeliophyllum

Information about this genus
Name: Abeliophyllum
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: The species will grow in a range of soil conditions but in cool temperate climates should be given a warm site. It can be trained against a wall if desired. Less vigorous old canes should be cut out and the shrub pruned every 2 to 3 years to maintain shape. Propa-gation is usually by half-hardened cuttings taken in summer or by layering in spring or autumn.
Description: The name of this genus is derived from Abelia which it is said to resemble. It contains just one species of small deciduous shrub that is closely related to Forsythia, bearing similar flowers in white. The shrub is native to the mountains of Korea where it is becoming scarce.
