What's in a name? Is the word grandiflora significant?
A house I recently bought came with a landscape plan that calls for 40 Abelia grandiflora 'Rose Creek'. Searching the Internet, I can find references to both Abelia x 'Rose Creek' and Abelia x grandiflora 'Rose Creek'. My local nursery has a plant labeled Abelia X with a common name of Rose Creek Abelia. For a guy that's just learning about this stuff, it's a little confusing.
Are all those references describing the same plant, or is there a variety without the grandiflora specification that is different from one with the word grandiflora in the scientific name?
