Photinia Hedging

Photinia - Red Robin or Christmas Berry - are evergreen dense, medium growing shrubs with an upright bushy habit. They have lovely bright green glossy foliage with new growth bright red later maturing to green. In spring they bear creamy white flowers rather sparsely across the shrub - they flower more if they are planted in full sun. When they flower they do take a lot of energy away from the rest of the plant so you might want to consider pruning when they are flowering, if using as a hedge. It can be easily trimmed into shape which also encourages new red growth. As with all evergreens come Winter you will see them loose some leaves that have gone yellow - to brown then drop off, these will be replaced in spring. They tend to grow roughly 30cm / 1 foot a year

Clipping Photinia Hedging

Photinias do need pruning to keep them looking tidy and so you can achieve the height and bushiness you need. They should be pruned in spring and again in late summer if the need it. You can also trim any untidy branches throughout the year.


The Photinia doesn't really have any dislikes as it can be grown it sheltered or exposed areas and from loamy soils to clay soil in acidic or neutral. Sometimes black spots appear on photinia leaves this only due to the extremely cold weather but they can be removed and new ones will come through.

Feeding Photinia

Photinias can be fed up to 4 times a year with an all purpose granular feed such as chicken pellets or bonemeal
