Escallonia Crimson Spire Hedging

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

General description of Escallonia Crimson Spire plants:

Along with Escallonia rubra macrantha, this is one of the fastest growing Escallonias that we sell, which makes it very well suited for use as hedging. Like all escallonia, Crimson Spire is excellent by the sea and withstands strong, salty winds.
The red flowers are carried through the summer until the first frosts.

History & uses:
Escallonia rubra Crimson Spire is a cultivar of a Chilean plant that was introduced to Britain in the 1820's. It has won an RHS Award of Garden Merit.
