Fraser’s photinia is a popular shrub in countries and regions with milder winters. It is a hybrid between photinia glabra and photinia serratifolia. Red Robin is a variety with larger and glossier leaves producing a fantastic coppery and red colour when they emerge. They turn green in summer.

In Southern Europe it is often grown as a hedge. Here we will find it a place sheltered from strong, drying winds in winter. It grows fast and can be pruned to achieve a more compact and denser habit. If it is damaged by harsh frost it always regenerates even from older wood. Prune it in early spring after danger of deep frost: March-April.

It needs moist but well-drained, humus-rich soil and mulching. Provide extra watering in hot summers and mainly in frost-free periods in the winter if the ground is not frozen. Hardy to -21°C, or even lower with protection.
