This superb new Photinia is a dwarf form of Photinia Red Robin with all features in perfect proportion to the larger plant but the colourful young foliage possibly even more spectacular. Colour is best in full sun but is tolerant of partial shade, but will only flower in full sun. The leaves mature to a dark green and sometimes it will set spherical red fruit in the autumn. Slower growing than Photinia Red Robin and tolerant of pruning so it makes a spectacular low hedge or small shrub. As Photinia Red Robin it will need protection from severe cold during its first winters.

HEDGE Trim in spring. For hedges 60 - 90cm (2 - 3ft). Plant 38cm (15ins) apart.

SHRUB 90 x 90cm (3 x 3ft).

Pot Grown Plants

These are normally sold in small 9cm wide pots, unless a different pot size is shown (where the pot size is shown in litres). Pot grown plants can be planted at any time of the year.

Availability

Pot Grown are generally available all year.

If a plant is currently out of stock because it is out of season (for example, bare rooted plants in summer) or we have sold out but we are expecting more to be available you can pre-order the plant. We only charge credit/debit cards when an order is despatched, not when an order is placed.

Planting Distances for planting as a Hedge

We recommend planting Photinia Little Red Robin in a single row 38cm/15ins apart.

Planting Guide & RootGrow

We recommend planting with RootGrow. The recommended amount for RootGrow for an order will be shown in your shopping basket.

We will send out a planting guide with your order, you also can find a guide to planting here.

Pruning

Hedging - As a general rule, plants grown for hedging need pruning to encourage side branching. Usually the harder a plant is pruned the bushier it will be. If they are not pruned there is a danger that the hedges will be thin and bare at the base and that the tips of the plants will die back. If the plant is naturally bushy, less or sometimes no pruning will be needed to achieve a dense hedge.

Photinia Little Red Robin: Prune any straggly or untidy shoots, otherwise no immediate pruning is required.
