The different hybrid cultivars of Escallonia can make great evergreen hedge plants. The most popular hedging varieties are crosses between Escallonia rubra and virgata.

Flower colours range from white to pink to red. Escallonia varieties with an upright habit make the most suitable hedge plants. Such examples include:

  • White - Escallonia 'iveyi'
  • Pink - Escallonia 'Apple Blossom'
  • Red - Escallonia 'Crimson Spire'

Escallonia has the ability to tolerate drought and lime soils. All the Escallonia rubra hybrids are hardy and especially useful for their ability to withstand coastal exposure.

Clip plants annually after flowering to keep a garden hedge neat or formal. Alternatively for shelter or stock hedging, leave them to grow untamed up to 2.5 to 4m tall.
