Photinia Red Robin is a popular evergreen shrub and is also known as Photinia Christmas Berry - latin name Photinia Fraseri.
This upright, evergreen shrub is frost hardy, very easy to grow and will thrive in most locations. These particular Red Robin plants with their nice, bushy shape are ideal for creating dense, evergreen hedging. They are available in all sizes up to a massive 10 feet tall, as many clients in need of hedging are looking for plants that will have an instant impact in their gardens.
Photinia Red Robin has wonderful year round interest and works very well as an evergreen hedging plant with a maximum height of 4 metres and a spread of 2 metres. Litte Red Robin's attractive young leaves are bright red in colour gradually turning green as the leaves age - so the shrub has a wonderful range of leaf colours throughout the growing season, usually May - June. It also forms small white flowers and fruits in August.
If used for evergreen hedging and pruned regularly, this plant will keep the new growth coming and encourage the red coloured leaves for which this shrub is renowned.
As it is easy to shape, Photinia is also a popular choice of shrub for use in topiary - Red Robin Half Standard or Photinia Red Robin Full Standard for a screening tree.
