The red-tipped Photinia 'Red Robin' cultivar is by far the best form available.

It's glossy evergreen foliage looks great all-year-round, but it's the fresh young leaves that really make it stand out. This bright red foliage covers the plant from spring onwards, and is often still looking colourful by the time autumn arrives.

Clusters of white flowers are a secondary bonus.

Can be trained as a small tree, or clipped tightly for formal hedging. It perhaps shows its assets fully when clipped less frequently, grown as an informal hedge up to 5m tall.
