The red robin is one of the most beautiful hedging plants there is. Its botanical name is Photinia fraseri 'Red Robin'.

What is special about this hedge plant?

One of the special features of this unusual plant is that it changes its colour several times a year. The glossy, dark green basic structure of the glossy medlar is interrupted by intensely red-coloured young shoots.

Different pruning options for this hedge plant

This hedge plant does not grow very compactly. To get a dense, formal hedge, the Photinia hedge needs to be pruned at least once a year. Regular pruning makes this garden plant even more attractive. Quickly after pruning, you will be rewarded with new, red-coloured shoots. Alternatively, you also have the option of keeping the hedge loose and informal and not pruning the glossy medlar much or at all.

The change through the seasons

Before the leaves turn green in summer, the numerous large umbrella panicles appear in May to June, providing a beautiful contrast to the red leaves. If you enjoy this, it is best to wait until after flowering before pruning.

Location & Care of the Glossy Medlar

The evergreen glossy medlar is hardy to a maximum of - 22 degrees Celsius. The Photinia prefers a sunny location. Use a little peat when planting. This garden plant is versatile. Thus, in addition to the single position, group plantings, hedges and also container keeping are possible.

The plants are grown in pots, so you can use these plants all year round. Available in different sizes.

We wish you much pleasure with the Red Robin medlar in your garden.
