ESCALLONIA 'Fradesii'

Plant of the Month - March 2021

Escallonia 'Fradesii' - Frades Escallonia/Pink Escallonia

Pink Escallonia displays showy clusters of rosy-pink, trumpet shaped flowers from early spring through fall and intermittently year-round. This woody ornamental shrub has dark green, glossy and compact evergreen foliage. Leaves emit a spicy aroma in warm temperatures and flowers have a sweet fragrance that is attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds. This is a tough, hardy plant with a delicate appearance that lends itself to cottage style gardens, mixed beds, or as a stand-alone focal shrub. It grows up to 6-8 feet tall and wide and is a great choice for use as screening or pruning into a hedge. Pink Escallonia grows well in full sun in coastal areas to part shade inland and is drought tolerant when established. It is also fire resistant for defensible space.
