Red Robin Photinia
A very popular evergreen tree, the Red Robin tree (Photinia x fraserii 'Red Robin') provides all year round colour, it is brilliant red, glossy young leaves are a of real appeal. Dainty white flowers in spring are on occasion, followed by spherical red fruit. This is a small tree which makes it very suitable for a small garden. We have found this tree to be quite hardy, although it is best to avoid really frosty positions.
Expect a dense and upright habit if left untrimmed. In non gardening terms this means it is a narrow and quite columnar. The Photinia Red Robin is very good for topiary and other ornamental uses.
Red Robin trees can be pruned hard at any time without damage as they are considered the Rambo equivalent of trees. As tough as it actually it, ornamentally speaking it is a stunning tree having won the RHS Award Of Garden Merit.
You can also plant Photinia Red Robin in containers so enabling you to move the tree to your hearts content. Remember that if the pot is too small it will restrict the size of the tree and will require feeding and watering more often than if it was in the ground. Our rule of thumb is the bigger the pot, the less risk you have of damaging or killing the tree.
A small tree so expect a height of up to 4 metres (13 foot) after 10 years.
This tree is supplied at a height of between 1.5 metres and 2.0 metres in a 7 or 12 litre container for year round planting and better results than from bare-root or rootballed stock.
