Escallonia Iveyi Hedging
Escallonia Iveyi is a vigorous evergreen shrub with fragrant leaves and plentiful white flowers. It is a great hedging plant, but we really love it as a large ornamental bush, when its numerous clusters of little white flowers can really show off. It needs plenty of sun and a well-drained site is essential.
Escallonia iveyi is good for hedges up to about 3 metres high.
