Photinia fraseri Red Robin is a popular evergreen shrub, prized for its stunning red foliage that emerges in spring and lasts through fall. It is a fast-growing plant that can reach up to 4 meters in height and spread up to 3 meters wide, making it an excellent choice for hedging or as a specimen plant in the garden.

The Photinia fraseri Red Robin - Compacta is a smaller variety of the Photinia fraseri Red Robin. It is a more compact and slower-growing shrub, reaching a height of around 1.5-2 meters with a similar spread. The leaves are also smaller and more rounded than the regular Red Robin.

One of the significant differences between the two varieties is their growth rate. While the regular Red Robin is a fast-growing shrub, the Compacta grows at a slower pace, making it an excellent choice for smaller gardens or as a low hedge. Another notable difference is the size and shape of the leaves, with the Compacta having smaller and rounder leaves than the regular Red Robin.

Overall, the Photinia fraseri Red Robin - Compacta is a beautiful and versatile shrub, suitable for a wide range of garden styles and sizes. Its compact size and slower growth rate make it a great choice for gardeners looking for a low-maintenance plant that will add year-round interest to their landscape.

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).
