    Description

    One of the most distinctive features of Photinia 'Red Robin' is its brilliant red new growth. In spring, the emerging leaves are bright red or coppery-red, creating a stunning contrast against the mature, glossy green leaves. This vibrant display of colors makes 'Red Robin' a standout plant in any setting. As the leaves age, they transition to a deep, lustrous green, maintaining their glossy appearance.


    Photinia 'Red Robin' is an excellent choice for hedges, screens, or standalone specimens. It has a dense growth habit and responds well to pruning, allowing it to be shaped into formal or informal shapes. It can be maintained as a compact shrub or trained into a tree form with a single trunk.

    When it comes to care, Photinia 'Red Robin' requires some attention to ensure its optimal growth and appearance:


    Sunlight: 'Red Robin' prefers full sun to partial shade. While it can tolerate some shade, exposure to direct sunlight helps promote the best coloration of its new growth.


    Soil: It thrives in well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter. Ensure that the soil is moist but not waterlogged.


    Watering: Adequate watering is important, particularly during the establishment phase. Once established, it is moderately drought-tolerant but benefits from regular watering during dry periods.


    Pruning: Regular pruning is essential to maintain the desired shape and size of 'Red Robin.' Prune in late winter or early spring before new growth emerges. Remove any dead, damaged, or crossing branches to encourage a healthy and well-structured plant.


    Fertilization: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in spring to provide the necessary nutrients for optimal growth. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for dosage and application.


    Pest and Disease Control: 'Red Robin' is generally resistant to pests and diseases. However, occasional issues with aphids, scales, or fungal diseases may arise. Monitor the plant regularly and take appropriate measures if necessary.
