Photina x fraseri 'Robusta'
Photinia x fraseri 'Robusta' is a remarkable, towering evergreen shrub or petite tree whose impressive leaves are saturated with deep green and glossy hues, glowing crimson to copper when newly emerged before mellowing to green.
Boasting a fast growth rate, this charismatic shrub is densely foliaged and captivates with it's glimmering young red foliage that transitions to dark, shiny green.
In the early spring, its domed-shaped crowns of small, antique-looking white flowers are replaced by vivid red berries.
Truly an ideal choice for a hedge or small tree.
This hardy shrub flourishes in full sun to semi-shade and grows approximately 5m tall by 3m wide, making it an excellent selection for screening and borders.
Plant in well-draining loam, sand, or well-drained soil, maintaining moisture when hot and dry, and fertilize annually with balanced fertilizer. Pruning regularly promotes the plants natural habit and creates a more dense foliage type.
If wishing to grow into a tree make sure to prune leaving one leader.
Please note: No live plants can be sent to Tasmania, N.T, W.A or overseas
