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

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.

Care advice for Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin'

They arrived safe and undamaged and were planted the same day. I think they may have even been a little larger than I was expecting which was great as it has already made an impact on the kerb-appeal of the building. Thank you
