Dwarf Escallonia, Escallonia 'Compacta', is a compact, tidy looking shrub with glossy green leaves. Pink to red flower clusters embellish the attractive foliage in spring and fall. It can be grown in full sun to partial shade, but tends to flower more with sun. Because it has a very deep root system, Dwarf Escallonia 'Compacta' can be grown in sloping beds and borders. Its clean and neat form makes it a great choice for edging or for a low growing hedge. In mass plantings, the evergreen foliage looks outstanding and will help keep a green landscape throughout winter.
