Further Information on Photinia Red Robin Hedges

Photinia Red Robin hedges are dense and fast-growing, generating a bushy appearance, particularly when trimmed regularly. In good soil, you can expect at least 30cm of growth per year, able to provide quick coverage when needed. They are easily maintained at 1-4 metres tall and excellent for creating boundaries and more private areas in your garden.

You can also buy them as pleached trees or fashion them into garden shrubs; with their thick, dense foliage, they can be trimmed into neat shapes, so whether you need simple topiaries or an elaborate centrepiece, Photinia Red Robin hedging will work beautifully.

When Photinia Red Robin hedging is grown in a sunny spot they will often produce a generous number of ivory flowers that turn a dusky pink and provide added interest during mid to late Spring. This is ideal for gardeners who wish to add a touch of colour and elegance to their gardens.

Planting Tips for Photinia Red Robin Hedging

For the best results, plant for Photinia Red Robin hedges in a sunny spot, while being careful not to crowd them in too much with other plants, in good well-drained soil. They thrive best when they have plenty of sunlight and space, and are super easy to care for!

We also recommend ensuring that you do not plant Photinia Red Robin in particularly exposed areas, where they could be damaged by the wind. There are many hedging species that are ideal for windy and exposed sites, but Photinia Red Robin is not well-suited.

For the best results with a new Photinia Red Robin hedge, we recommend keeping the young plants completely free of weeds for the first two years, water consistently in their first year of planting,  and applying a mulch to conserve valuable moisture in the first Summer while they establish.
