1/2 Standard 90cm Stem Pleached Pleached Photinia Red Robin Plants WIth Upgraded Metal Frames. Frame Size 100cm x 100cm, Stem 90cm +/-, Girth 8/10. Photinia Red Robin is a fabulous, all your round addition to your garden or outside space. With the young foliage appearing a vibrant red in Spring and an abundance of white flowers in April/May it is a beautiful evergreen tree. The glossy green leaves have spectacular red tips which make it a fantastic feature for your garden.   

The photinia is perfect for the UK as it can tolerate temperatures down to -12c  and, if left unpruned it will produce masses of white flowers, happy in most soil types except heavy clay and more suited to drier conditions rather than waterlogged ground.

When planting the Red Robin in is better to pick a full sun or partial shade area as it is not suited to full shade. Although we generally advise planting in Spring or Autumn the Red Robin can be planted at any time of the year as long as the conditions are not frozen and ypu can ensure a good water supply during dry periods.

These are bushy plants as pictured they will provide pretty much instant screening.  

Photinia are an easily maintained quick growing plant. They grow best in fertile, moist, well-drained soil in sun or partial shade in a sheltered position. The young shoots can become scorched by cold or drying winds and late frosts if grown in an exposed position. Photinia is tolerant of most soils, even clay as long as it has been improved by incorporating well-rotted compost or manure. Most Photinia require minimal pruning, however these plants have been trained into topiary standards, so to keep the heads in check they will benefit from the occasional trim. To keep the shape of the head under control we recommend trimming a little and often during the growing season and summer, in colder UK areas try to avoid trimming after mid-August, since any new growth would be vulnerable to autumn frosts. Hard pruning, if required should be done in spring when the worse of the weather has passed.

At Charella, you can purchase beautiful Photinia trees, giving your garden or landscaping project a focal point. Photinias are highly valued for their striking new growth, which boasts vibrant hues that contrast beautifully with the glossy, dark green leaves that remain evergreen. Among the various Photinia varieties available at Charella, Photinia × fraseri 'Red Robin' is particularly popular and can be found in a variety of shapes and sizes. However, there are also other, lesser-known Photinia varieties available to purchase. Choose many different varieties of Photinia trees The variety of Photinia that you select all comes down to your personal preference. Photinia is a diverse genus that comprises around 50 species and belongs to the same family as Cotoneaster. They are known for their glossy, evergreen leaves and vibrant new growth, and all the varieties available offer this characteristic. They are a perfect addition to any garden, adding a unique touch of colour and texture. What can they offer your garden? For those looking to add a touch of greenery to their outdoor space, including front gardens, back gardens they are even classed as a potted plant, but the compact size of Photinia trees varieties makes them an ideal selection. They are also ideal for complementing other shrubs and plants in the garden. One such variety is Photinia x fraseri 'Louise' known for its variegated foliage pattern, while Photinia serratifolia 'Crunchy' stands out with its distinct undulated texture on the leaves. These varieties are an excellent choice for those looking for something different than the commonly found Photinia × fraseri 'Red Robin' and will bring a unique look to your garden. Caring for Photinia trees Caring for Photinia varieties is relatively easy. They prefer full sun to partial shade and well-draining soil. They should be watered regularly, especially during dry spells, to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Twice a year they require fertilising and they also require pruning. Pruning is also necessary to promote bushier growth and to remove any dead or diseased branches. Photinia trees are disease-resistant, but they may be susceptible to pests such as spider mites and scale insects. Regularly inspecting the tree and treating any infestations promptly can help keep pests at bay. Staking Trees Staking may be advisable if planting in an exposed position where windrock may be an issue. Once you have dug your hole and the tree is ready to plant, place a stake at a 45-degree angle leaning back towards the support structure. Once planted, compact soil mixture around the base for extra support and water well.

Unfortunately the weight and height of these plants makes it impossible for us to deliver them by courier and can only be delivered in one of our vehicles so we cannot deliver nationwide. As a rough guide we deliver to almost all destinations south of our nursery in the Cotswolds and upto approximately Manchester and Leeds if heading north. The website will not take your order if you are outside of one of our delivery postcodes, this will be confirmed in the checkout and basket area when postcode is entered.

We may be able to deliver outside of one of our regular areas but by arrangement only. Contact us here
