One of our most popular hedge plants, the new foliage of the Photinia x fraseri (also known as Red Tip Photinia or Red Robin) boasts a cheerful bright red colour turning evergreen after a few weeks.

Once matured the Photinia x fraseri leaves are dark green with red tips. During spring small white flowers blossom on the Red Tip Photinia which produce red berries likely to remain through until winter.

  • Best Features: Bright red new leaves, evergreen foliage, year-round interest
  • Ideal For Hedges: 1m-4m high
  • Growth Rate: Average | 20-40cm a year
  • Position: Any normal soil, sun or partial shade and exposed inland
  • Also Consider: Laurel Etna hedging for attractive bronzed foliage and a more compact, denser form than Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin'.

We also have a fantastic range of Photinia Topiary Standards

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

Red Robin’ (Photinia x fraseri) hedging bursts into spring displaying vivid red foliage, which contrasts wonderfully with the deep green of the older foliage (hence also being known as Red Tip Photinia). Planting Red Tip Photinia in a sun-loving place will really bring out the best of its bright red colour, although partial shade is also suitable.

Photinia Red Robin is a popular evergreen hedging plant bursting with colour and complemented by small creamy white flowers during spring. Wildlife are attracted to the Photinia x fraseri for its flowers and red berries from autumn through to winter.

Best use for Photinia hedging

Photinia x fraseri ‘Red Robin’ is not particularly dense, allowing for gentle movement in the breeze. A delightful species for garden hedging Red Tip Photinia looks splendid when regularly trimmed and injects colour and interest to its surroundings year-round.

Combine Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin' with

There is no need to accompany Photinia x fraseri with additional hedge plants for decorative reasons, as it offers wonderful interest throughout the year when planted alone.

Growth rate of a Photinia Red Robin Hedge

With an average annual growth rate of around 30cm, Photinia x fraseri is ideal for hedge heights of between 1 – 4 metres.

Care advice for Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin'

If you are trying to achieve a formal hedge style, best4hedging recommend trimming your Photinia x fraseri during spring or early summer. Alternatively, for a more relaxed appearance, let the Red Robin hedge grow and trim back when necessary. Allowing good air circulation among the Red Tip Photinia leaves will help to prevent Photinia disease which is caused by a form of fungus.  If you do notice circles starting to appear on the Red Robin’s leaves, you should try to remove the affected leaves as soon as possible. Further advice can be found on our Hedging Care Advice page.

The web site is very precise regarding plant size and planting advice. It allowed me to pick the correct size plants for my hedging area. Quality and size of plants exactly what I was expecting. Effect of hedge will be perfect, I am sure, once established by this time next year.

  • Orders £85 & over (ex. VAT) to mainland UK are delivered FREE* (Exceptions apply - see below for Scottish Highlands etc)
  • Orders under £85 (ex. VAT) to mainland UK £9.95
  • At an additional cost, we can deliver to Scottish Highlands & Islands, which we classify as including AB (Aberdeen) and DD (Dundee) postcodes, as well as Ireland, Channel Islands, Isle of Wight and Isle Man. The exact delivery cost is order specific and will need to be quoted by one of our team, so please contact us on 01257 261 243

*For some plants that are too heavy or too tall to be packed in cardboard boxes we use pallet deliveries. In these circumstances, we require a minimum order value of £200 (ex VAT) for free delivery, or you can make a contribution towards the delivery cost. Look out for the information on product pages which explains this further where applicable and if your order is for less than £200 (ex VAT) please call or email us to agree upon a delivery contribution. This requirement only applies to those plants where it is clearly indicated on the product page

Pallet deliveries are always undertaken on an 18-tonne vehicle (similar in size to a standard refuse vehicle). If for any reason you require a smaller vehicle please contact our sales team who can arrange this for you. There will be an additional surcharge applied for small vehicle deliveries

Delivery Timescales

99% of our orders are dispatched within 3 to 7 working days of receipt and most the day after the order is placed. We can do “next day delivery” on many of our products for an additional £12 (incl VAT) but please call on 01257 494 491 before placing your order to check.

We can also deliver on a specified date to suit you. Please indicate the date you would like to receive delivery in the notes section of the checkout (or place your order by phone) and we’ll do our utmost to meet that date.

Occasional hiccups can occur (such as broken down vehicles) and although we are very experienced in logistics we cannot be held liable for costs incurred or inconvenience due to late deliveries - see terms and conditions for more information.

You will receive an email or telephone call confirming the dispatch of your order 24/48 hours before it arrives with you.

Exceptions to our quick turnaround timescale

Pre-orders - if you have placed an order that includes products on pre-order, then they will be dispatched to you as soon as they are available. If your order includes pre-order bare roots or root balls you will be notified once they are being dispatched (root balls from mid to late October and bare roots from early to mid-November).

Root balls - lifting root balls involves the use of complex, heavy machinery, this lifting is carried out twice a week in the root ball season so we do still have a prompt turnaround timescale but if your order has just missed one lifting, it will be a few days before we lift again. We are always happy to confirm when we can deliver to you before you order. The benefit of this method of supplying root balls is that they are always fresh and therefore have a higher success rate than root balls that are stored out of the soil.

Weather conditions can affect dispatch - bare root and root ball plants are not lifted if the ground is too cold (it damages the roots) and the delivery of all plants can be affected if the water supply is frozen (because we water all plants before packing). Extremely hot weather can also be challenging and occasionally we hold backorders for species that are particularly vulnerable. We ask our customers to be mindful of bank holidays when couriers are not active.

We'd like to stress that although there are exceptions, the vast majority of our orders are dispatched extremely quickly and we are proud of our logistics developed over many years of delivering plants to tens of thousands of customers.

Returns

We inspect plants carefully before dispatch but accept that very occasionally things may go wrong. 
You can return your plants (within 14 days) for a refund or replacement (we’ll help with the process of returning). If your plants arrived damaged then returns are free of charge. However, we ask that you inform us as soon as possible. If you’d like to return your plants because of a change of plan or if we do not agree that the plants are significantly damaged (the loss of a few leaves in transit or a loose pot on arrival, for example, wouldn't be harmful to the plants), then we may ask you to pay the full or partial return costs if you still wanted to return them. We’re very reasonable and always aim for complete satisfaction as demonstrated by our amazing Feefo customer reviews which can be viewed here.

Should you wish to return any products that you have over-bought, no longer require or purchased in error you will incur both a return cost (different charges for pallets and Boxes) and the original cost of delivery incurred by Best4hedging. Please contact the Service team for charges and/or to organise a return. Plants will be subject to a quality control check from our Nursery upon return before any refund is authorised and processed.

Please note that in the case of damaged plants, if you have not notified us of a problem within 14 days of delivery, we consider you to have accepted the plants and Best4Hedging has no further liability for them should they fail.
