Photinia x fraseri 'Chico' is a compact and ornamental shrub, perfect for adding a splash of color to gardens or patios. This particular variety stands on a clear stem of 40cm, giving it an elegant, tree-like appearance. In total, it reaches a height of about 80cm, making it ideal for smaller spaces or as a striking container plant.

The plant features glossy, evergreen leaves that are small and rounded, giving it a dense, bushy appearance. The young foliage emerges in vibrant shades of red and bronze, creating a striking contrast against the mature, dark green leaves. This color change adds seasonal interest and visual appeal.

'Chico' blooms in spring, producing clusters of small, creamy white flowers. These blossoms are not only attractive but also attract pollinators to the garden. After flowering, the plant may produce small, inconspicuous fruits.

This Photinia variety is relatively low-maintenance, requiring only occasional pruning to maintain its shape and promote denser foliage. It thrives in well-drained soil and prefers a sunny to partially shaded location. Hardy and resilient, 'Chico' is resistant to many common pests and diseases, making it a reliable choice for both novice and experienced gardeners.

Overall, Photinia x fraseri 'Chico' on a 40cm clear stem is a versatile and decorative plant that can add year-round interest to any garden setting, be it in the ground or in a pot.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
