Photinia ‘Robusta’ – 140MM

(Not currently available to be ordered)

I am Photinia Robusta. My family originated from Asia

Botanic Name: Photinia x fraseri ‘Robusta’

Tree – Winter Colour

I am a large shrub with abundant clusters of small white flowers set against green and red foliage from late winter into spring. My glossy foliage matures to a dense dark green.

I respond well to pruning and can be clipped to shape as desired. I am ideal for low maintenance hedging and screening.

I am extremely hardy and disease resistant making me a good choice for exposed locations and coastal conditions. I am a good choice when a handsome hedge is required in partially shaded locations.

Full Sun to Part Shade (4+ hours of direct sun)
Height: 6m Width: 5m
(Can be kept trimmed to Height: 3m Width: 1.5m)
I need moderate water once established
I grow well in almost all soils but am happiest with good drainage
I am popular and will make you happy because…
My fast growth, glossy foliage and response to pruning suites me to be a feature or screening plant

I produce large heads of creamy-white small flowers from mid winter into spring

    Plant me:

  • in garden beds and general landscaping

Tips for success…

An annual prune to shape after flowering will enhance my bushy form
Plant me 2.5m apart
