    Paul B3, Didn't realise there are so many. Will just have to label it Escallonia Bright Red for now.

    Thanks Paul B3, People have been saying how pretty it is. Have been asked  if I can do cutting for them so will see if I can find when to take some.

    If I remember correctly , I think it's softwood cuttings in Spring , or hardwood cuttings in late Summer/early Autumn ; either way , good luck with them .

    Paul B3,Hardwood cutting Oct/Nov. Basal, heel or nodal cuttings July/Oct but with hormone powder. Book says both easy to propagate, so looks like the whole street will be getting one. I have a book called Successful Propagation by Which and another called Propagating Plants by the RHS both good books.
