im growing this as a bonsai ,I've had it a long time and forgotten the name would be grateful if you good people could tell me what it's called. I think it's a house plant usually and when it flowers the flowers stink.

If they are little black flies its sounds like scarifly,caused by the soil staying wet and poor drainage in the pot. If this is the case repot and improve drainage and fresh compost.

One would ask will the escallonia plants topple over in the winds if they are shallow rooted, how high do you intend to grow them?
