Description

The South American Andes are home to most escallonias. Some varieties need shelter from cold winds but they are generally quite hardy. It is a graceful shrub with arching stems and solid compact growth. The neat glossy evergreen foliage offers a perfect background to smaller plants, and makes a fine hedge in seaside gardens. 'Apple Blossom' flowers for 6-8 weeks after mid-summer, in a very attractive blend of soft pink and white. Escallonias are best planted in late spring, allowing time to settle in before winter.
