The Photinia fraseri 'Red Robin'

The Photinia fraseri 'Red Robin,' also known as the Red Robin or Photinia, is a striking and well-known presence in Dutch gardens and parks.

 

Evergreen

The Photinia fraseri 'Red Robin' is an evergreen tree, meaning that its leaves remain on the tree during winter, retaining their colors.

 

Leaf Color

The Photinia displays a beautiful play of colors in its leaves.

The leaves emerge in a dark red hue, with a bright red color at the tips.

As they age, the leaves transition to a dark green shade and feel firm to the touch.

 

Growth Habit

The growth habit of the Photinia fraseri 'Red Robin' is bushy and full. Therefore, the Red Robin has various applications, including hedge planting, espalier trees, and shrubs.

At Amitis, the Photinia fraseri 'Red Robin' is supplied as a young tree with a single main stem.

 

Flowering

In the months of May and June, the Photinia fraseri 'Red Robin' blooms with large, white flower clusters, where numerous small flowers come together in a big bloom.

 

Red Berries

After flowering, small red berries appear on the tree, gradually turning completely black as they age, and they are consumed by birds.

 

Maintenance

The Photinia fraseri 'Red Robin' is also easy to maintain, as the tree can be pruned into shape without any issues, and it tolerates pruning well.

 

Location

The Photinia fraseri 'Red Robin' thrives on almost any soil type, provided it contains sufficient nutrients and is not too wet.

 

How to plant the tree?

  1. Determine the final location of the tree and ensure it is free from cables, debris, old plants, and other obstacles that may hinder the tree's growth.
  2. Dig a planting hole that is twice the width of the root ball. Loosen the soil at the bottom of the planting hole and mix the excavated soil with (organic) garden soil or planting substrate.
  3. Adjust the planting hole to the height where the root ball fits and firmly press the soil.
  4. Fill the planting hole with water and wait for it to settle. Check if the root ball is sufficiently moist.
  5. Place the tree or plant in the planting hole. It is extremely important that the tree is not planted too deep, as this can cause root rot.
  6. Insert a tree stake or bamboo stake firmly into the ground on the side of the tree where the most wind comes from.
  7. Now, place the watering ring or create a mound of soil around the tree so that water can seep into the ground.
