Bright red, glossy new foliage makes Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin' hedge plants one of our Best4hedging top 10 species. The mature foliage of Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin' is dark-green with red tinges and creamy white spring flowers, although this species is primarily grown for its younger foliage colour. The growth of these hedge plants is somewhat loose and gives good movement in the wind.
We also have a fantastic range of Photinia Topiary Shapes

Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin' boasts wonderful vibrant red foliage in the spring on new growth, 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, though 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.
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.
Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin' looks wonderful when planted alone, it can provide a colourful feature in any garden without the need for companion plants to add impact.
Photinia hedging has an average growth rate of about 30cm a year, making it suitable for maintaining a height of 1m-4m.
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. Please view our Hedging Care Advice page for further information on pruning Photinia hedging.
For information on planting density specific to your Photinia Red Robin hedge, please see the product table below. In the 'No. Per Metre' column, you will find our recommended plant density for each individual plant species and root type. You can find more information about planting density in our advice section.
Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin' is available to purchase from Best4hedging at any time of year; we offer both Cell Grown and Pot Grown Photinia Red Robin hedge plants.
The vast majority our Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin' plants are UK grown by experts with masses of experience, though we occasionally source Photinia hedging from specialist nurseries overseas, where we’re confident that the quality is equal to that of our UK sites. At Best4hedging, we continuously strive to deliver the freshest, highest quality Photinia Red Robin hedge plants whilst keeping our great, competitive prices low, so you can buy Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin' online with confidence.
*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
99% of our orders are dispatched within 3-5 working days of receipt and most the day after the order is placed. We can do “next day delivery” on many of our products but please call 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 back orders 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.
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.
