Product Information

 ESCALLONIA

Red Dream

A compact, dense, evergreen shrub with small, glossy, deep green leaves which have a wavy of jagged edge.

Racemes or clusters of small bright red chalice shaped flowers smoother the entire plant from early June to late September.

The brightly coloured flowers contrast well with the dark green foliage making this an attractive border or ground cover shrub.

Someone once described it as “a charming and elegant plant   ---   a miniature marvel” who am I to argue.

Prefers fertile, well-drained soil and a bright sunny position with a little shelter.

Escallonia Red Dream also makes an outstanding low-growing informal hedge especially in coastal areas.

Seldom reaches more than 60-70cm high with a spread of 1m.

To keep in check, simply cut back the old flowering shoots immediately after flowering.

All pictures used are of mature plants in full bloom and may not necessarily reflect plants at all times of the year.

Our plants are supplied ex. 10cm pots, they can be planted out immediately but better results may be obtained if they are grown on for a short time in a slightly larger container before transplanting to their final growing positions

IMMEDIATE DISPATCH

FREE DELIVERY 

We ask all our buyers to remember plants are living items and their appearance changes with the seasons.  Please don’t panic if the plant you receive looks different to the image on the website. This is quite normal and not a matter for any worry or concern, it is likely to be in perfect condition for the time of year and just enjoying a well-earned rest before bursting into action for the new season. Particularly in autumn and winter many shrubs will lose their leaves and look rather bare, gaunt and stick-like and from August onwards many perennial plants may not even be showing above the soil.

We want you to be happy with your purchase and all our items are checked and inspected visually before packing. In the unlikely event of a problem please advise us within 48hrs of delivery. Due to the nature of the goods we cannot accept any responsibility for their failure after planting as pests, disease, poor horticultural practice, extremes of weather and many other factors outside our control all take their toll. Goods will only be accepted for return after seller has been informed and given permission for their return.  Refunds will be issued when items are received back in saleable condition within 14 days from original dispatch date. Buyer must pay all return charges except where an item has been dispatched in error.
