Metrosideros "Little Ewan"

Description

Metrosideros "Little Ewan"

Lovers of colour please make an orderly queue.

If you love the look of Metrosideros Fiji Fire but have no room, don’t panic. Take a look at Metrosideros Little Ewan. He’s a mini version of fiery Fiji but retains all its character with red-flushed new growth and WOW factor fluffy red flowers in the warmer months.

Little Ewan is a low-growing and dense evergreen shrub with year-round fresh green leaves. He’ll only reach a compact 100cms by 100cms making him suitable for show-off specimen planting, borders, beneath larger shrubs, as a low hedge, and in pots to bring that boring deck to fiery life.

He’ll also attract the pollinators and birds to your garden with nectar-rich blooms - he’s such a great guy.

You might think that this is a delicate plant given the dramatic colour, but he is hardy, tolerating coastal conditions of wind and salt.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: So many ways! I suit a low hedge, a specimen in the border or even mass-planted for a totally stunning sea of red. I also like containers, but do water me.

  • I grow to: A compact 100cms by 100cms

  • Where to place me:  I’m pretty hardy and like the full sun and partial shade.

  • How far to space me:  Give me 75cms of space for a nice compact hedge.

  • Soil Conditions: I am tough and deal with most garden soils if they’re not waterlogged. Help me out with mulch if yours is thin and dry.

    Our plants are beautifully grown and mature in size with developed root's and guaranteed sun hardened. These plants can be inserted straight into the ground and make an excellent garden plant.
