Photinia Red Robin is a popular evergreen shrub known for its stunning red foliage. It is often used in garden and landscape designs as a hedging plant or a standalone specimen. The scientific name of this plant is Photinia x fraseri, and it is a hybrid species that is a cross between Photinia glabra and Photinia serratifolia. This plant typically grows to be about 3-4mt tall and 2-3mt wide, but can be pruned to maintain a smaller size. It produces dark green leaves in the spring and summer, which turn a vibrant red color in the fall and winter. The plant also produces clusters of small white flowers in the spring, which are followed by red berries in the fall.

Photinia Red Robin is relatively easy to care for and is tolerant of a wide range of soil types and pH levels. It prefers a sunny or partially shaded location and regular watering. Pruning can be done in the spring to maintain the desired shape and size of the plant. However, it should be noted that this plant can be susceptible to leaf spot and other fungal diseases, so it's important to maintain good air circulation around the plant and avoid overhead watering. Will benefit from feeding twice per year with a complete plant food and liquid fertilizer
