Fire up your garden with Photinia

​Add a splash of colour to the landscape with this fastgrowing evergreen. Ideal for screens and hedges. Photinia features a dense habit with dark glossy leaves, accented by fiery red new growth.

Warners stocks three varieties of Photinia, each with their own distinguishing characteristics:

  • PHOTINIA ROBUSTA
    An old favourite, Photinia robusta is currently at its best, featuring stunning copper-red growth through Spring. As its name suggests, it is a hardy plant that responds well to clipping, especially after Spring flush.
  • PHOTINIA 'RED ROBIN'
    This hybrid features a more open habit than ‘Robusta’, and is distinguishable by its intense red growth. Ideal for open sunny locations, ‘Red Robin’ should be trimmed regularly to encourage new growth.
  • PHOTINIA 'CAMILVY'
    Named after the daughters of a Dutch nurseryman, Camilvy features dark ruby-red foliage, which makes a gorgeous contrast to the foliage of 'Robusta'. The tallest growing of the three varieties, 'Camilvy' also features a more open habit.
