Red Robin Hedging (Photinia x fraseri ‘Red Robin’) produces bright red youthful leaves which contrasts beautifully against the dark green more mature foliage. During the spring, Red Robin boasts clusters of creamy white flowers which attracts an array of wildlife.
Although red robin provides year round interest, it isn’t a particularly dense hedge, so it’s not recommended if privacy is a high priority.
