Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Escallonia rubra 'Macrantha' is a versatile hardy shrub that can easily find a home in most gardens. It's versatile enough to be put to use as an informal screen or hedge but it won't disgrace itself in a shrubbery display too. During summer the plant is covered in rosy red flowers to waft scent into the air and also attract pollinating insects to visit the garden too. Height: 250cm (98"). Spread: 250cm (98").

Grow Escallonia plants on fertile, well-drained soil in full sun with shelter from cold, drying winds.
Deadhead Escallonia plants regularly to encourage further blooms. During late spring, lightly cut back any shoots that spoil the symmetry of the plant. Mulch the plants with well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plant at the same time.
