Varieties of Escallonia Shrubs & Hedge Plants

Escallonias are evergreen shrubs with glossy, aromatic leaves that clip easily into a neat hedge. In summer, they produce quite small but very colourful flowers that attract bees and butterflies. On a sunny year, you should get repeat flushes of flowers until September.

Escallonia 'Peach Blossom' and Escallonia 'Apple Blossom' are the slowest growing, smallest varieties that we stock and usually won't reach much more than 2.5 metres. These are most commonly planted as ornamental shrubs, but they will still make a perfectly good hedge.
All of the other varieties are more vigorous and will grow to 3-4 metres. Escallonia rubra macrantha is probably the fastest growing and it is the best choice for planting on a very windy site.

Growing Escallonia:
These plants will tolerate any soil with good drainage (that is really the most important thing), including chalk and poor soil. They love a sunny site and are perfect for exposed, windy coastal locations. Escallonia can suffer some leaf damage in a really cold winter, but this is not a serious issue.
It is not recommended for inland frost pockets, sites in full shade or with poor drainage. If you are planting it in the North or Scotland, we recommended putting it in a sheltered, South facing location.
If your soil is poor and sandy, dig in lots of well rotted manure and compost a few weeks before planting day to help your plants establish quickly.
