Photinia Red Robin or Christmas Berry

Evergreen dense, medium growing shrubs with an upright bushy habbit. They have lovely green glossy foliage with new growth being a nice bright red later before maturing. In Spring they do bear creamy white flowers rather sparsley accross the shrub - they flower more if they are planted in full sun.

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

Pruning 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 a general tidy up later on in summer.

When they flower this can take a lot of energy away from the plant so you might want to consider pruning these off or feeding well. 

Feeding Photinia

Photinias can be fed upto 4 times a year with an all purpose granula feed such as chicken pellets or bonemeal.

How To Grow

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 extremly cold weather but they can be removed and new ones will come through.
