Escallonia 'Red Dream’ is a small, compact, low-growing, bushy, evergreen shrub with small, ovate, leathery, glossy, dark green leaves. Clusters of rosy-red, tubular flowers bloom in summer and autumn and are attractive to bees and other pollinators. Escallonia 'Red Dream’ can adapt to a wide range of soils, but grow best in medium moisture, well-drained soils. It thrives in full sun, but is tolerant of partial shade. It is resistant to heat and salty air, therefore, perfect for coastal areas. It has to be protected from cold, drying winds. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require pruning. Escallonia 'Red Dream’ is a lovely, easy to grow shrub, perfect for oceanic and Mediterranean climate. Great for beds and borders or planted in masses as a ground cover. Excellent for informal, flowering hedges and screens. Good as a windbreak in coastal areas. Suitable for growing in pots and containers on patios, balconies, or roof gardens.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
