Photinia Red Robin Hedges

Photinias are members of the rose family (Rosaceae) and are related to the apple. Photinia x fraseri ‘Red Robin’ is the fashionable choice for those looking for vibrant and striking colour in their hedge. The new growth of this Photinia is a strong, deep red which then slowly matures to a shiny dark green – the plant’s name comes from photeinos, the Greek for glossy.
