Photinia x fraseri Red Robin Plant

The best known of its species, Photinia ‘Red Robin’ is well loved for its blaze of bright scarlet young foliage in spring. The glossy new leaves and crimson stems make a strong contrast with the mature green foliage lower down the plant, giving an eye catching two-tone effect. The Spring foliage is complemented by rounded clusters of creamy white flowers. This popular evergreen shrub is versatile too – plant it in woodland areas and shrubberies for a splash of spring colour, or grow it as a low maintenance specimen plant. This colourful RHS AGM variety even tolerates hard pruning, making a useful evergreen hedge. In frost prone areas, plant Photinia next to a warm wall or in the shelter of other shrubs.
