Photinia Red Robin – Red Robin

  • Description
A hardy shrub or small tree with glossy, elliptic leaves to 10cm in length, bright red when young, later dark green that is valued for its bright red new growth. Clusters of small white flowers during summer will generally not appear on regularly trimmed plants. The regularly trimming will keep them to size and prevent the branches from getting too large. A yearly application of slow release fertilizer will help maintain their vigour and colour.
