Little Red Robin leaves


Little Red Robin leaves (Photinia)

This is my mini - Photinia. The leaves aren't as glossy as those of its big brother - but it's a lovely evergreen plant!

It may not be as glossy but judging by your pics it provides the colouring

Only a little, Angie. The 3-year old one has 'bushed' out a bit. It's in a pot with red and gold pansies - I think there's a photo somewhere. I'll try to find it for you.

Nice, Spritz - what's its full Latin handle? I didn't know there was a small Photinia - leaves look toothed, more so than on the larger one.

It's Photinia x fraseri 'Little Red Robin', Bamboo. I'm glad you like it! :-)

I shall be looking for this when I get a chance - at 3 x 3 and evergreen, a very useful little shrub

Yes, indeed it is - they do seem to be around at the moment. I saw some at the good GC I was at yesterday, too. Good luck!
