The Photinia Red Robin hedge plant is a marvellous alternative choice for an evergreen hedge because of its brilliant red glossy young leaves which give a spectacular display in spring and summer before maturing to dark green.
Photinia Red Robin is not a particularly dense shrub, so it has some movement in the breeze, attractive for many sites, but not recommended where a security hedge is required. It develops clusters of small white flowers in mid and late spring, sometimes followed by red fruit, but it is its spring foliage that sets this hedging apart.
