North Yorkshire, United Kingdom
I've bought some Photinia Fraseri Red Robin shrubs but not planted them yet. I want to make a dense evergreen screen at least 2m high under mature sycamore trees. Its fairly sheltered and gets some sun but not lots (the big trees are above the shrubs, but not to the south). The books say "thrives in full sun" but also "use for underplanting trees".
Do these shrubs grow well under big trees, or should I take them back and swap for something shade-loving? If so any suggestions? (I've planted a lot of cherry laurel so trying to avoid that.)
Many thanks for any advice.
