Photinia glabra Rubens

Mature tubestock, premium and ready to plant!


Photinia Glabra Rubens

Photinia Glabra Rubens is a hardy evergreen shrub with large glossy green leaves that emerge bright ruby red in springtime. Soon after the scarlet foliage appears, small white flowers arrive.

It’s a really lovely hedging shrub that’s closely related to Photinia Red Robin - the main difference is Rubens is less dense and creates dappled shade. It’s an ideal light screening plant.

Photinia Glabra Rubens is useful as either a short or tall hedge and ideal for planting light windbreaks around your seating area. It also does a great job of breaking up different areas of the garden.

This is a tough and hardy frost-tolerant evergreen that needs little from you once established. 

Well-drained fertile soil brings out the brightest ruby reds so dig in some organic matter if your soil is a bit thin.
