Photinia Red Robin Established Plants in 10, 18 or 30 litre pots: The Christmas Berry. A beautiful and ever popular evergreen shrub.  With its spectacular, glossy, green and red leaves. It is often used as a dense, fast growing hedge with fabulous results, if not pruned too hard it will produce small white flowers followed by red berries. Looking to create a hedge? we recommend planting at intervals of 2 to 3 per metre, this wont give an instant hedge but will give a good effect immediately and also leave the plants some growing room, to give your hedge the perfect start we suggest adding a slow release fertiliser to the planting area we recommend, 'Osmocote Pre Plant' its the professionals choice and what we use here on the nursery.

 

 

 

Planting position: Plant in full sun through to light, partial shade. Away from exposed windy sites and extreme frost.

Soil: Suited to a wide range of soils, even clay if it is improved with rotted manure or compost.

Suitable for container planting: Yes, will grow quite happily in a pot.

Eventual height and spread: Can and often does reach, without pruning, a height of 3 metres and a 2-3 metre spread.

Pruning: Photinias require minimal pruning but pruning throughout the year will encourage the regrowth of this spectacular foliage. If it is grown as a hedge then remove the tips of the young shoots to encourage the bright red leafy re-growth. They can be trimmed up to 3 times a year. It is best to prune the Christmas Berry in the growing season, late March early April.

Growth Speed: Relatively quickly.

Flowering period: If not pruned too severely flowering is usually April to May or June

Evergreen: Yes

Winter hardy: -10

In many circumstances where the Photinia is planted in rich soil, it will require no additional fertiliser. If you notice or think growth is relatively slow, apply some slow release fertiliser. Apart from this and pruning to keep the size in check the plant has no real specific requirements.
