Photinia Red Robin.
Photinia ‘Red Robin,’ also known as Photinia x fraseri ‘Red Robin,’ is a popular evergreen shrub with striking red foliage.
Photinia ‘Red Robin’ is a dense, bushy shrub that can reach a height of 4-8 meters. It has glossy, elliptical leaves that are initially bright red when they emerge in spring, fading to a deep green as they mature. The new growth gives the shrub its signature red hue, creating a beautiful contrast with the older green foliage.
In late spring or early summer, ‘Red Robin’ produces small, creamy-white flowers in dense clusters, adding to its overall charm. Following the flowers, it may produce small red berries, which are not usually very showy but can attract birds to the garden.
It is hardy and can withstand a range of weather conditions, making it suitable for various regions. This plant is often used for hedging, as a standalone specimen, or as part of mixed shrub borders to add vibrant colour and texture to the landscape. It’s known for its versatility and its ability to add visual interest throughout the year.
