Escallonia rubra macrantha is a vigorous evergreen shrub with fragrant leaves and relatively big pink-red flowers. It is a great hedging plant, especially on windy coastal sites. It needs plenty of sun and a well drained site is essential.
Escallonia macrantha is good for hedges up to about 4 metres high.

Escallonia rubra macrantha hedge plants are only delivered pot-grown, year round. We may delay delivery in mid-winter if the weather is too cold.
All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots & pots aren't measured).

Spacing an Escallonia rubra macrantha hedge:
Plant Escallonia rubra macrantha hedging at 2 plants per metre, 50cms apart.

General description of Escallonia rubra macrantha plants:
Along with Escallonia Crimson Spire, this is one of the fastest growing Escallonias that we sell and we really recommend it for hedging by the sea, where it will grow well in strong, salty winds. The shiny green leaves have a spicy scent, reminiscent of Friars Balsam or Allspice.
The bright pink-red flowers are carried through the summer until the first frosts.

History & uses:
Escallonia rubra macrantha is a natural variety of Chilean plant. It was introduced to Britain in the late 1840's. It has won an RHS Award of Garden Merit.
