A striking evergreen pleached tree, Photinia × fraseri 'Red Robin' has bright red new foliage and stems, with leaves turning a dark, glossy green as they mature. The bright red growth appears in spring and autumn, especially if encouraged by regular pruning. Clusters of ivory coloured flowers in spring add further interest, with flowering being more common when it is grown in full sun.
Our pleached Photinia trees have been carefully and expertly trained over a number of years to create beautiful screening trees, sometimes known as hedging in the sky or stilt hedging. Photinia 'Red Robin' is a reasonably vigorous evergreen and in this pleached form it is ideal as interesting year-round screening and for creating privacy.
