Description

Photinia x Fraseri ‘Red Robin’ is a popular cultivar of the evergreen shrub Photinia. It is known for its vibrant red foliage, which adds a bold splash of colour to gardens and landscapes.

The leaves of ‘Red Robin’ are elliptical in shape and emerge as bright red when they first unfurl. As the foliage matures, it transitions to a deep, glossy green colour. The new growth that emerges after pruning or in spring has the brightest red coloration, creating a striking contrast against the mature green leaves.

‘Red Robin’ thrives in well-drained soil and prefers full sun to partial shade. It is relatively adaptable to different soil types and can tolerate both dry and moist conditions. Regular watering and mulching are beneficial for its overall health and growth, especially during hot and dry periods.

This cultivar is commonly used as a specimen plant, in hedges, or as a colourful backdrop in mixed borders. Its bright red foliage stands out and adds a focal point to the landscape. ‘Red Robin’ can also be trained into formal shapes or used as a screen for privacy due to its dense growth habit.
