Not currently available

The Red Robin (Photinia x Fraseri) is a native, evergreen plant to North America and Asia. It is a hardy plant, surviving in temperatures as low as -12C, and suits most soils apart from waterlogged or heavy clay soils. It has a lovely red colour to its leaves that turn green as they mature, producing tiny white flowers in June if it hasn’t been pruned. It thrives in sunlight and doesn’t mind being in partly shaded areas, but dislikes being planted in full shade. It hardly requires watering, and will survive in moderate drought too.

There are many ways to grow the Red Robin plant, including planting it in the ground, in pots and against a wall. It can make for a great decorative feature with its lovely coloured leaves. It truly is an easy plant to grow and look after, with pruning once or twice a year recommended between March and mid July, to help keep its shape. It tends to drop its leaves throughout the year, and it is a good idea to collect these from the base of the tree to deter snails and slugs. To plant the Red Robin as a hedge, it is recommended that you plant individual plants two and half feet apart for a quick growing, effective hedge solution.
