Photinia Fraseri Pink Marble Large 12 or 35 Litre:  A recently introduced cultivar with variegated cream and green leaves, which when they first emerge are flushed in pinky red, so overall the effect is very colourful. A very effective evergreen plant, for hedging or a stand-alone specimen fully winter hardy and tolerant of hard pruning, so the size can easily be kept in check.
