Photinia Red Robin is an excellent choice of fast-growing evergreen hedge – growing up to 60cm per year in ideal conditions. It offers instant screening and privacy. Not only is it compact and upright in habit, it is also a plant that is suitable to attract wildlife to your garden. Photinia Red Robin is also a hardy plant and will tolerate both chalky and clay soils as long as they are relatively free draining. The new growth is a stunning coppery red in Spring and again in Summer, making it more visually attractive than cherry laurel. In Spring, Photinias often produce masses of white flowers, that are slightly scented and attractive to bees. They are easy to prune and benefit from regular pruning when young, to create a dense privacy hedge. They are best pruned any time between late March to the end of August. Reliable in every season, it is a versatile choice of hedge, being both drought tolerant and frost resilient.
