Photinia Red Robin Hedge Plants Description

Photinia Red Robin is not a particularly dense shrub, so it has some movement in the breeze, attractive for many sites but not recommended where a security hedge is required. It develops clusters of small white flowers in mid and late spring, sometimes followed by red fruit, but it is the spring foliage that sets this evergreen hedging shrub apart, which turns from a vivid red to eventually mature to dark green. To find other hedging species that differ from the usual green colour, try our colourful foliage department.

Its growth rate is average, growing approx 30cm each year. Photinia should be trimmed to a formal hedge shape in spring and summer or can be left informal, just being trimmed down in height and width when needed. For a low growing and more compact version of Photinia, try Photinia 'Little Red Robin', or alternatively, see our fantastic collection of low growing hedge plants

It prefers a sunny site but will tolerate partial shade and although frost hardy young plants should be protected in Winter. It will do well in any well drained soil.

The Photinia shrub can be prone to leaf drop. If this happens, prune it back but dont cut into leafless wood and apply a slow release fertiliser in spring and water if necessary and you will be rewarded with vigorous bright new growth.

Further Information

You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed in the product grid. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long you’re willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.

For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section.
