Photinia Red Robin hedge (Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin') description

Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin' boasts wonderful, new, vibrant red foliage in the spring, with older foliage showcasing a darker, glossy green that is equally attractive. Make the best of this colourful evergreen hedging by planting Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin' in a sunny spot; although suited to partial shade, the brightest red colour will emerge in a sunnier position. A Photinia Red Robin hedge is not tightly compact, allowing the foliage to shiver slightly in a breeze and has a looser overall structure than some heavily dense species. The small, creamy-white flowers that appear on Photinia hedging in spring are popular with wildlife, as are the berries that come later in the season.

Best uses for Photinia hedging

A delightful evergreen, Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin' is ideal for formal or garden hedging as it takes well to trimming and looks just as attractive when left a little bit bushy. Although not very dense, a Photinia Red Robin hedge will still make a good windbreak and can be useful for adding colour and texture to the garden.

Growth rate of a Photinia Red Robin Hedge

Care advice for Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin'

At best4hedging, we recommend trimming your Photinia Red Robin hedge in the Spring and/or Summer to give it a formal, neat form; or allow it to bush out slightly and cut back as and when required, simply to keep it under control. Sometimes Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin' can be prone to leaf drop, in the unlikely event that this occurs, trim back your Photinia Red Robin hedge (not into leafless wood) and apply fertiliser in the spring.
