Photinia x fraseri ‘Red Robin’ – Pleached 8-10cm girth

You can create an instant, evergreen screen when buying pleached Photinia trees. Have a look at a showcase project showing these pleached trees planted here.

Photinia Red Robin is a shallow rooted, fast-growing, evergreen variety with vibrant colours that enhance gardens and boundaries in the spring, summer and winter months.

In spring, the young serrated foliage emerges red, accompanied by an abundance of white flowers in April/May. As the young red leaves mature, they gradually harden to a glossy green.

These Pleached Photinia Red Robin trees have a 1.8m clear stem with a dense head of foliage that has been trained onto a framework. Designed to sit above a standard 6ft fence panel in order to create a stilted hedge, this raised hedge will help to screen unsightly views from your property e.g. neighbours windows, satellite dishes, extensions.

We recommend planting the trees 1.5m apart to form an uninterrupted screen.

Photinia will grow in most soils, preferring moist free draining types with no waterlogging.
