Escallonia ‘C.F. Ball’
escallonia 'C.F. Ball'
2 Litre Pot - Bigger Size, Better Value!
We are passionate about sustainability, so we don’t like our plants to go to waste. These plants are slightly pot-bound and have been pruned back over winter, so we have reduced their price accordingly. While they aren’t quite as pretty as their fellow nursery plants, they are still healthy and will perform well in your garden.
A vigorous and versatile evergreen shrub, ‘C.F. Ball’ produces deep crimson, tubular flowers throughout summer above a dense backdrop of glossy, dark green leaves. This specimen is ideal as a hedging plant or grown within a mixed border.

Escallonia are evergreen shrubs with textured leaves and red, pink or white flowers. Ideal for hedging and screens.
On arrival, unpack your new garden additions, and, if needed, give a light watering. Your plants are containerised and established, so you can get planting, as long as the ground is not waterlogged or frozen (in these situations, keep your plants in a sheltered position while you wait). For the first year, keep an eye on moisture availability, while roots settle into their new home.
For shrubs, dig a hole, allowing 2 inches either side of the pot width. Try and ensure you plant your new arrival at the same level in the ground as it had been sitting at in its pot. We recommend using a small sprinkle of rootgrow to the base of the planting hole – this will stimulate optimum root development.
We’ve been growing plants in the heart of the Shropshire countryside for nearly 70 years. As passionate horticulturalists and expert growers, we care about plant health and the environmental impact of what we grow and sell.
