How tall does photinia red robin grow?

 Blog  •  Published on: 15 Sep 2019

If we begin to enumerate the bushes most popularly used in gardens around the world, the Photinia will surely come to our head, and among the large number of variances we will think of the Photinia Red Robin. Its great particularity compared to the other varieties of Photinias is that their leaves when they are young have a reddish hue, characteristic that they lose as they mature. But this is not the only reason why so many gardeners around the world choose to plant Red Robin Photinias in their garden, their popularity is based on many other aspects such as:

- Perfect adaptability to grow both in a pot or soil, as well as indoors and outdoors.

- The Photinia Red Robin is very easy to prune.

- It is a very strong bush against pests and diseases.

- It is very resistant to adverse climates.

- Once planted it is established and develops quickly.

- Develops thick foliage, especially for perimeter fences (anti curious neighbors).

- Easy to take care of.

- Perfectly adaptable to different sizes.

It is from this last point that I wanted to talk about, how much can our Photinia Red Robin be adapted to the various size needs? How tall does photinia red robin grow? Can you stay in a small size?

This bush supports strong pruning in a very good way, this makes it a very adaptable plant to various sizes. Being able to create good perimeter fences 6-10 feet high, or develop it as a small tree where you can reach peacefully at 20 feet.

On the other hand if you want to have it in the balcony of your apartment in a pot, you can also do it. It will be enough that you control it with good pruning to keep it at heights rather than 6 feet.

Speaking of the size of the Red Robin Photinias we can not fail to mention that this shrub is quite sought for bonsai production. So if you want to experiment with the art of bonsai and have a small specimen of this shrub it is a good option to practice with it.

To close this brief post, let's make it clear that if you want an evergreen bush in your garden or inside your house, don't be afraid if you have a lot of space or not, the Photinia Red Robin will know how to accommodate whatever you have . Just always have scissors on hand and be willing to prune. :)
