Product Description

If you're looking for a garden plant a little more out of the ordinary, then Photinia serratifolia 'Crunchy' is the one for you! An attractive evergreen shrub made all the more special due to the unusual chocolate-brown colouring of its new leaves along with a serrated leaf edge.

The unique colouring of 'Crunchy' makes it a wonderful plant to use in hedges, for mass plantings, in beds and borders or as a specimen plant in your favourite container on the terrace or balcony where it forms a great contrast to the more usual garden greens.

Easy to grow and hardly demanding any maintenance, 'Crunchy' is disease-tolerant - so no troublesome mildew or other problems - and you can plant it and leave it to do its thing with nothing more than a light prune in spring or summer to help keep it under control.

Growing to just 200cm high and 120cm wide this Photinia is hardy to -15C so can be grown in any garden with maximum results, even by the most inexperienced of gardeners.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Pot-grown shrubs can be planted at any time of the year as long as the soil is not waterlogged or frozen. If in doubt, err towards spring but remember to keep pots well-watered so that the soil does not dry out.
  • Best grown out of the wind which can burn new growth when it first emerges.

Care Guide

  • Best grown in a well-drained, fertile soil in sun or partial shade.
  • Shrub roots generally tend to spread out rather than down, so dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting, and mix some well rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill one the shrub is in place.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub 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
  • Pruning can be carried out in spring or summer and is a simple case of removing any broken, weak or dead branches.
