Photinia robusta ‘Compacta’ – 12 litre – 60/70cm


This new variety of Photinia is in between the traditional Red Robin and the Little Red Robin.  It has smaller leaves than the Red Robin but has an upright, tidier habit than Little Red Robin, which if left uncut tends to get a bit loose in nature.  In the Spring the new leaves and stems emerge as a deep red and then gradually fade through the season to green.  If the shrub is regularly trimmed in late spring or summer it will make a very nice, dense, interesting evergreen hedge of up to 3metres tall. Best planted in full sun or partial shade, bears white flowers in April to May.
