Escallonia Escallonia


Colour: Red
Flowering: June - July
Height: Up to 8' (2.5 m)
Family: Escalloniaceae


Escallonia is a native of South America. The leaves are deep, glossy green and the variety we have in the garden is evergreen.

The flowers are tubular with five rounded lobes. They come in a variety of shades of pink and red.

We have found that this shrub thrives in the garden although in more northerly locations it should be planted in a sheltered spot. It is a good hedging plant as it is fast-growing, evergreen and grows well in any well-drained soil.
