Escallonia Gold Ellen or the Golden Escallonia is a beautiful evergreen shrub with golden foliage and attractive pink flowers. This bushy shrub makes an excellent mixed border or single feature plant that provides bright colours and year-round interest to the garden. The bright yellow leaves of Golden Escallonia are splashed with green in the centre. In summer, large pink flowers contrasting vividly on the foliage create a soothing display.
This striking evergreen bush will ensure your garden looks attractive and fresh throughout the year. The new leaves emerge as bright golden that age to darker green with yellowish edges. It blooms dark pink flowers from June to August. If you are looking for a summer plant that holds the power to stay perky throughout the year, then Gold Ellen is the perfect choice for you.
It is not just the appearance but also the easy of growing Gold Ellen that attracts many gardeners. It will thrive in full sunlight or partial shade in any soil that is moist and well-drained. When growing it inland, the plant needs a sheltered spot away from cold winds.
Golden Escallonia is an easy to grow garden shrub that requires low maintenance and care. Keep the soil moist in the first year of growth, especially if you are using a garden container. Prune it lightly after the flowering period or earlier in spring. A generous organic fertilizer feed annually in spring will ensure healthy new growth.
Golden Escallonia is ideal for low hedging and screening for any low maintenance gardens. It will perform its best in a sunny spot around the flower beds or in sheltered borders.
