Photinia x fraseri 'Little Red Robin'
Dwarf Christmas Berry
Little Red Robin' is a recently introduced variety of Photinia which has the colourful characteristics of 'Red Robin' but in a much smaller frame. The leaves are also smaller. This evergreen shrub has glossy dark green leaves. The young growth is a striking red colour. The flowers are white and borne in flattened flowerheads in mid-spring.
These easy maintenance, hardy plants thrive in full sun to partial shade and can tolerate a variety of soil types, even very poor and heavy (clay) soils. Photinia 'Red Robin' is happy in a border or in a container and also makes wonderful, compact ornamental hedges. Fully frost hardy, prune lightly immediately after flowering to retain shape or reduce size.
