Feed in Moderation
  • Common Name: Abelia
  • Latin Name: Abelia
  • Family Name: Caprifoliaceae/Linnaeaceae

This attractive shrub seems to have no toxic properties and so it should be fine to feed the flowers and leaves to your tortoise in moderation.  Do not confuse with Weigela, which is related to the Abelia and somewhat resembles it.  Although the majority of flowers are white with a pink tinge, some varieties have pink or lilac coloured flowers.
