Photinia 'Carre Rouge'

Photinia 'Carre Rouge'

From £12.99

Photinia 'Carre Rouge is a hardy evergreen that produces red foliage turning to green as it matures. Small white flowers appear in April. In comparison to the better known Photinia Red Robin', the 'Carre Rouge' variety is slower growing, more compact and less sprawling, with smaller leaves and a stronger, more intense red colouring on the new growth.

In terms of management,' Carre Rouge' is a much easier variety to maintain as a garden shrub and is also more tolerant of hard pruning. Requires full sun and moist but well drained soil. Will tolerate dappled shade.

1. Select Root Type

Bare Root 

Bare roots are young plants that are only planted when they are dormant, from November to March (weather dependant). We lift bare root plants and despatch them during the planting season but they can be pre-ordered in summer to guarantee your stock. As they are cheaper to grow, they are one of our most affordable hedge planting options and the cheapest way to plant a hedge.

Root Ball 

Root ball plants are also seasonal stock as they can only be lifted when they are dormant, from November to March (weather dependant). These plants are scooped out of the ground like an ice-cream using machinery to keep their root system intact and wrapped in bio-degradable, hessian sacks.  They are mature plants that provide dense coverage very early on, ideal for when you need a thick hedge quickly. Root ball hedging plants give an instant effect and are a cheaper alternative to instant trough grown hedging. 

Pot Grown 

Pot grown plants can be planted year round and they are our mose convenient option of hedging plants. They come in a wide range of sizes, from 10cm to 2.5m so they're suitable for the majority of planting requirements. From small 2L shrubs to large 15L extra tall hedging, there will be a pot grown plant for any garden type. 

Instant Hedging 

Our Instant Hedging is grown in troughs or bags that measure 50cm-1 metre in length and carefully clipped during the growing season to create a dramatic, instant hedge effect. If you are looking for a quick fix or an instant impact, Instant Trough Grown hedging is the solution for you.

This new Photinia variety features a much more compact habit with smaller leaves and an intense, red colour on the new growth that sets it apart its larger cousin, 'Red Robin'. Plant in full sun to appreciate the vibrant red of the new leaves.
