To be frank, I still don’t think I’d plant Photinia x fraseri ‘Red Robin’. It is boldly coloured and evergreen (except for the red bits) but the leaves are quite leathery and I’m suspicious about how it doesn’t struggle with other plants growing around it. However, having a mature specimen in our garden, it is a popular refuge for birds readying themselves to visit our feeders and it will certainly be allowed to remain until we have other plants fulfilling that role. It is also rather glorious when the young growth captures the sun.
Stay of execution granted!
