Photinia Red Robin

Description

Photinia Red Robin is a real tough cookie that looks just as good in a formal garden or creating a screen to create privacy from neighbours.

Red Robin is a shrub which performs equally well in warm and cold climates. It has dark glossy green leaves that cluster thickly making it a great sound and wind barrier, but the brilliant red new growth is what Red Robin is all about.

In the summer months, you’ll find little clusters of white flowers on the branch tips.

Many folk use Red Robin for hedging and screening where he reaches four metres high and remains evergreen all year round. If you want to hedge me, just give me a trim at the beginning of Spring and you will get some good growth.

Frost tolerant once established and can also tolerate some drought, although regular watering does tend to make growth that bit faster. Think easy growing, low maintenance and pretty disease free and that is what you get in Red Robin.

Quick Facts

  • What to use me for: I’m the ultimate evergreen hedge and screening plant. Block out those neighbours.

  • I grow to:   I’ll reach 3-4 m high by 1.5- 2m wide

  • Where to place me: I like full sun to partial shade, please.

  • How far to space me:  For a nice thick hedge plant us 1-1.5m apart

  • Soil Conditions: Well-drained but otherwise I’m not fussy. Some organic matter and mulch would be nice if it’s a hot spot and the soil is thin.
