Photinia Red Robin Hedging Plants

Photinia fraseri, Christmas Berry Hedge

Photinia Red Robin is a very popular garden plant that makes a fantastic hedge. The outstanding feature of this broad-leaved evergreen shrub is the brilliant red, glossy young foliage that provides a flush of colour during spring and summer. Quite stunning on masse, the young leaves start out almost pink, slowly turning brilliant red then to bronze and later maturing to dark green. Photinia Red Robin produce clusters of creamy white flowers in late spring and these are sometimes followed by red berry-like fruit. Photinia hedges respond well to trimming. To create a denser more formal hedge, pruning should be carried out right from the start. If Photinia are left unchecked the hedge can become leggy and sparse. If trimmed twice a year (spring and summer) Photinia can be kept as a dense, formal, evergreen hedge up to 4m high. Less formal if just trimmed once a year. Trimming the hedge during the growing season also provides a flush of new growth of the colourful young leaves. Photinia Red Robin would be an excellent choice for a fast growing evergreen hedge, enhancing the garden or boundaries with splashes of pink, red, bronze and green during the Spring and Summer and providing some much needed colour in Winter.

Rootballed plants are available in bigger sizes from October through to April, weather dependent. These plants are grown in bigger sizes going up to 3 metres in height. Rootballed plants are lifted during the plants dormant period. This reduces the amount of stress imposed on the plants and increases the chances of successful re-establishment. Plants are also lifted to order to minimise the time they are stored out of the ground before replanting. Although rootball plants may seem expensive many of these plants will be between 6-15 years old and will have been root pruned and trimmed many times before they are lifted. Rootball plants tend to be bushier than pot grown plants as they have been out in the field and more exposed to the elements. They are lifted from the field using specialist machinery and the soil rootball is hessian wrapped to protect it. This protective wrapping should be left on at planting and will naturally bio degrade.
