Photinia Red Robin plants makes an excellent evergreen hedge that is attractive year round but especially in early Spring and Summer when the new foliage is a stunning bronze red. The glossy leaves are oval in shape and up to 10cm long meaning that with good pruning the Photinia quickly makes an evergreen screen offering good privacy. It does best when planted in full to part sunny conditions and will tolerate all soils as long as they are fairly free draining. The growth rate of most Photinia plants is fast when compared to most shrubs and can easily exceed 30 cm per year under good growing conditions.
