Photinia - x "fraseri" Red Robin

A very popular hedge plant, this fast growing evergreen is ideal to plant at the back of a border.  The glossy foliage of the Photinia x fraseri (also known as Red Tip Photinia or Red Robin) boasts a cheerful bright red colour turning evergreen after a few weeks.

Once matured the Photinia x fraseri leaves are dark green with red tips. During spring small white flowers blossom on the Red Tip Photinia which produce red berries likely to remain through until winter.
