Planting & Care
When you’re ready to plant your Dwarf Escallonia, dig a hole that’s about two times the size of your plant’s root ball, place the tree in the hole, back fill the soil and water to settle the roots. If you’re container planting your Dwarf Escallonia, simply select a container that’s twice the size of the tree’s root ball and follow in-ground instructions from there. The container you select should also have drainage holes.
2. Watering: Once established, your Dwarf Escallonia Shrub is drought tolerant, but it’s important to have a regular watering schedule for the first few growing seasons. Water your Escallonia about once weekly or more often in extreme heat and check the surrounding soil…if the surrounding soil is dry about 3 inches down, it’s time to water your plant.
3. Fertilizing: Feed your Dwarf Escallonia with a general-purpose fertilizer in early spring, before new growth begins.
4. Pruning: Prune your Dwarf Escallonia after flowering each year, for shaping purposes.

Customer Reviews & Photos
As usual from Fast Growing Trees, the Shrub arrived fast and nice and healthy. I bought it for a larger planter that sits in my Courtyard. I really like the shiny leaves and the tiny red flowers are a nice touch. I decided to get a second one for the other corner.
