Photinia Carre Rouge Instant hedging

Photinia Carre Rouge Instant hedging is a bright evergreen hedge that is related to the Photinia Red Robin.  Like its better-known cousin Photinia Carre Rouge also has stunning deep red new growth and which we think is darker in colour, longer lasting and much more impressive than the normal Photinia Red Robin.  The colour on the new growth fades very slowly to green and if it is trimmed to tidy it up you will get another flush of this deep red foliage.

Photinia Carre Rouge Instant hedging has a slower growth rate than the Photinia Red Robin but it will still need regular trimming to maintain the density and the look of the hedge.  If it is allowed to grow in a more natural way it will form some lovely creamy white flowers, but this will make it a looser hedge.  It is an excellent hedge for helping with sound pollution as the medium sized leaves are very good at trapping sound within themselves.  It is also good at trapping airbourne pollutants and dust within its leaves.

Photinia Carre Rouge Instant hedging is happiest in a good moist well drained soil, but being lime tolerant as well it is able to grow in nearly any part of the United Kingdom.
