Perfect for creating an informal showstopper hedge, Escallonia rubra Macanthra or Chilean Gum Box is a superbly hardy, dense evergreen shrub that will add a splash of summer colour to any garden. From June to August the small deeply verdant leaves provide a wonderfully rich backdrop to its vivid pink and lightly sweet-scented tubular blooms. Chilean Gum Box also merges beautifully with tall and brightly coloured perennials such as Verbena.

Grow on fertile, well-drained soil in full sun with shelter from cold drying winds. Deadhead regularly to encourage further flowering and mulch with well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plant.
