Old-fashioned and one of the most useful of the Escallonias, this dense, rounded-leaved shrub, to 6-8 ft, is great for hedging, mass planting, or backgrounds. And yes, parking strips. The flowers, often beginning early spring and repeating throughout the season, are pale salmon-pink contrasting nicely with the red tinted foliage. In summer weather the entire shrub carries the vanilla infused fragrance of pine in warm afternoons. Though somewhat drought tolerant, they prefer regular, deep watering in dry summer places. Frost hardy to USDA zone 7 with reports from sheltered zone 6.
