Photinia 'Red Robin' - Hardy plant

Photinia fraseri Red Robin
Glossy red in the garden
Glossy, leathery leaves. They are a dead giveaway that you are looking at a photinia. The Photinia "Red Robin" (Photinia fraseri) is an evergreen plant. It is a winter-hardy plant as well! In the spring, the hedge unveils its glossy, red leaves. These slowly change to a golden green. In the spring, the photinia produces small, white flowers. The flowers are replaced by red berries in the autumn. The hedge will flourish in all types of soil and is easy to prune. For a beautiful, full hedge, we recommend using five bushes per metre. The hedge should be pruned twice per year. Once in the spring and once in the autumn. For the best results, give the hedge "beech and hedge" food. The hedge will grow in any moist, well-drained soil. Make sure that the ground stays moist during the initial period after planting. It's best to give them extra water during dry periods. Sufficient light is needed to ensure good growth. The hedge grows best in full or half sun.

Seasonal effects

The appearance of a hedge changes between seasons. From a bare plant lying dormant in winter to fresh greenery in spring, in full bloom during summer to leaves changing colour and dropping in autumn. This is a natural process courtesy of mother nature. Our plants will be delivered accordingly.

Planting+

Plant your Fraser's Photinia in a hole 60-80 cm deep. Prepare the soil with compost and manure. If the soil is heavy clay, mix in a little sharp sand. Before planting, soak the plants in water for one hour. Divide the plants in the trench, planting at 60 to 80 cm intervals. You can also plant a double row of hedges for an extra wide hedge. The top of the root ball should be just below ground level in the garden (please note that some land will collapse). Fill with soil, press firmly and apply lots of water so that it almost turns into a swamp. Water after planting and regularly at the start of each spring. we recommend to prune the top of it immediately after planting.

'Red Robin is a strong evergreen that requires little care. Make sure that the soil does not dry out during dry periods. A mulch of compost and granulated cow manure will be appreciated during the winter.

Care+

Fraser's Photinia is a robust evergreen shrub that requires minimal maintenance. Water the soil during dry periods and provide it with compost and granulated cow manure during the winter. Pruning is not absolutely necessary if this plant is a freestanding bush, but you can prune it to maintain a good shape after it flowers in June.

Fraser's Photinia can be pruned

Fraser's Photinia can first be pruned halfway through June. It grows new shoots after mid-June, and can grow well after being pruned. It is best to prune the hedge so that it is slightly wider at the bottom and gets trim towards the top. Do you prefer a straight cut? Tie a rope across the top of the hedge. If you don't want to damage its large, shiny leaves, trim it instead of cutting it. Its longer shoots can be shortened more during the winter.

Extra+

Fraser's Photinia is a fantastic, shiny solitary plant, although it is often used as a hedge. Creamy-white flowers will appear in summer at the tip of the branches if you do not trim the new growth.
