Escallonia 'Gold Ellen'


Escallonia 'Gold Ellen'

An evergreen variegated shrub which almost died completely in the winter of 2009/10. It is recovering now but still very small really. Good to see it flowering again!

I've had an escallonia for years and years, but I'm trimming it hard back now, so no flowers. Are the leaves on yours aromatic? I love the scent of them.

I never even knew they had aromatic leaves...will need to check!

Thats good! Have you taken cuttings of them Annie? I took a cutting of this one for you but boy my shrub cuttings are taking an age to root!

I noticed you put variegated? we grow this but is is more yellow with pink flowers, there is a Gold Brian also.....

You're right, it doesn't appear to be variegated at all, but I'm sure it was when I planted it!....I'll look it up! I looked it up and some are variegated, some not, and it says it should have white flowers! Now I am confuddled! Here it is on Halcyon website where it says the variegation is stronger early in the year....

I am going to put a photo on of ours, but all the flowers have finished now....I would not mind buying a variegated one.

Yes, I went out and checked and the older leaves still have some variegation on them, but none in this photo A. I used to have Gold Brian. It was removed because it was in the wrong place years ago. it was nice though....very similar to this one if I remember rightly.
