Escallonia Pink Elle


A new introduction boasting an abundance of huge pink flower heads, the largest of any escallonia.
Tidy, glossy, evergreen foliage looks great all year round, but gets almost hidden in summer when it is topped by magnificent clusters of pink blooms that are so loved by bees and butterflies. Great as a low informal hedge, especially in coastal areas. Prefers a sheltered spot in well-drained soil in sun. Height & spread 1m (40"). Hardy perennial. Supplied in
 9cm pots.

Additional Information

Escallonia is a genus of 40 to 50 species of flowering plants of the Escalloniaceae family. Mostly evergreen shrubs (rarely small trees), they are native to South America. Widely cultivated and commonly used as a hedging plant. Ideal for coastal areas, escallonias normally grow about 30 cm (12 in) per year, reaching 1.5-3 m (5-10 ft) in height, with arching branches of small, oval, glossy green leaves. Some varieties will need some winter protection.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
