Product Description

Photinia 'Red Robin' is a very popular, vigorous evergreen shrub, which boasts glossy, bright red leaves, which give a spectacular display in spring and summer. The leaves gradually change through a mix of oranges, purples and bronzes, maturing to deep dark green. The newest shoots retain a dark red glow all year.

Red Robin is often planted as an ornamental shrub or as a fast-growing, dense hedge. It produces clusters of small white flowers in spring, sometimes followed by red fruit - but it is the bright, blood-red spring foliage that really sets this hedging shrub apart. The colour is really intense and unusual, especially so early in the year, and being evergreen, has year round interest.

A great and versatile shrub for hedging, screening, or as a backdrop, yet easily manageable in smaller gardens with annual pruning. Grows up to 30cm a year once established.

What Is Supplied

Item 500198 supplied as:
Supplied as a pack of 10 plants, established in 9cm pots, ready to plant out. Space 1m apart for the perfect hedge.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Keep plants well-watered to avoid leaf drop in the summer.

Care Guide

  • Your Photinia will grow approx 30cm each year, and should be trimmed in spring and summer or can be left informal, just being trimmed down when needed.
  • Photinia prefers a sunny site but will tolerate partial shade and although frost hardy young plants should be protected in winter until established.

To plant:

  • Space plants approx 0.75-1m (2.5-3ft)
  • Water your potted plant well
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling)
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball
  • Water well
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc
