Product Information

A new selection of the popular shrub Red Robin, this superb plant retains all of the features that make its cousin such a favourite but with the advantage of a more compact habit with smaller leaves that are more intensely coloured red. A very bright and rewarding plant, this fully hardy, evergreen beauty has a slower rate of growth and will reach around 1.5m (5ft) in height making it ideal for gardens where space is limited.

The unique colouring of 'Carre Rouge' makes it a wonderful plant to use in hedges, for mass plantings, in beds and borders or as a specimen plant in your favourite container on the terrace or balcony where it forms a great contrast to the more usual garden greens.

Easy to grow and hardly demanding any maintenance, photinia is robust and healthy - and you can plant it and leave it to do its thing with nothing more than a light prune in spring or summer to help keep it under control.
 
Supplied as an established plant in a 2L pot, Photinia prefers a sunny site but will tolerate partial shade and although frost hardy young plants should be protected in winter until established.

Planting Advice for Photinia Carre Rouge:

  • Water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level as it was in the nursery pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
  • If using multiple plants as a hedge, space them approx 75cm (2.5ft) apart
