Care advice for your Red Escallonia hedge

For the best results, we advise pruning your Escallonia rubra macrantha hedge plants after flowering to create shape and definition. These hedge plants respond very well to a hard pruning, which should be carried out in the spring, allowing new growth the optimum amount of time to grow back before winter frosts set in. When grown as a shrub, Escallonia rubra macrantha may need two trimmings a year to maintain a formal shape. Please view our Hedging Care Advice page for further instructions on how to prune and care for your Red Escallonia Hedge.
