Escallonia Gold Ellen is a large, evergreen, multi-stemmed, flowering shrub of rounded habit.   Ideal for hedging and well suited to coastal areas or the mixed shrub border providing year round interest.  The bright yellow foliage ages to dark green with gold/yellow outlines and becomes more prominent when planted in a sunny position providing a stunning backdrop to the clusters of large pink flowers produced over an extended period throughout the Summer months.

Very little pruning is required, although the removal of any damaged or unwanted branches should be done mid-late Spring. Dead head regularly through the Summer to prolong the flowering season.
