Product Information

Sometimes called “Christmas Berry”.

A large, vigorous evergreen shrub with big, laurel like, glossy, green, leathery leaves, and very attractive young growth.

“Red Robin” was raised in New  Zealand and is a spectacular clone with brilliant red young leaves and shoots.

A hardy shrub that can be planted in full sun or partial shade and will thrive in any reasonable well drained garden soil.

If planted in a sunny position, ivory coloured flowers appear in April-May and are sometimes followed by spherical red fruit.

Sometimes grown as a hedge, this deservedly popular shrub will eventually reach a height and spread of 400 cm x 400 cm.

To encourage young growth plants should be kept well clipped and a mulch of well rotted garden compost or farmyard manure applied in spring.

R.H.S. Award of Garden Merit.

Plants supplied approx. 20cm tall growing in a 10cm container
