Product Information

Photinia 'Little Red Robin' is a very popular, vigorous evergreen shrub, which boasts glossy, bright red leaves, which give a spectacular display in spring and summer. The leaves gradually change through a mix of oranges, purples and bronzes, maturing to deep dark green.

The newest shoots retain a dark red glow all year. It produces clusters of small white flowers in spring, sometimes followed by red fruit - but it is the bright blood red spring foliage that really sets this hedging shrub apart. The colour is really intense and unusual, especially so early in the year, and being evergreen, has year round interest.

A great and versatile choice for a low growing shrub for hedging, or as a stand alone plant. Grow in full sun for best red foliage colour and it will glow on those long summer nights. Whilst it will fade to darker green somewhat over winter, it retains a mix of red tones all year.

Supplied as an established plant in a 2L pot, ready to plant.

Top Tips

Keep plants well-watered to avoid leaf drop in the summer.

Care Information

  • Your Photinia will grow approx 30cm each year, and should be trimmed in spring and summer or can be left informal, just being trimmed down when needed.
  • Photinia prefers a sunny site but will tolerate partial shade and although frost hardy young plants should be protected in winter until established.

To plant:

  • Space plants approx 0.75-1m (2.5-3ft)
  • Water your potted plant well
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling)
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball
  • Water well
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc
