Photinia x fraseri 'Louise'
This hardy, evergreen shrub provides year round colour. The new growths are variegated with pink and rosy red markings, maturing to green and cream variegations. In summer, clusters of white flowers are produced. This plant has a tidy habit and can be used as a hedge, in a mixed border, or as a free standing specimen. Responds well to trimming and pruning.
Any average garden soil, avoiding wet areas. Trim to size and shape in spring or remove young growths in summer.
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.
