Photinia x fraseri 'Carre Rouge'
This newly introduced, evergreen shrub has blood red young shoots, that turn to green, regular shaped leaves. Hardy and easy to grow, offering shelter to other plants.
Best pruned to size and shape and fed with a good general fertiliser in spring. Plant into any average garden soil, avoiding wet areas.
Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather. Feed in spring with a good, general fertiliser.
