Description

Most are forms of the garden hybrid P. x fraseri, with glossy dark green adult foliage, and variable red tinted young leaves, especially as they just unfold. 'Red Robin' is one, a choice form with eye-catching juvenile growth the colour of sealing wax, similar to a pieris. This is sometimes caught by late spring frosts, and some shelter is advisable. Plants enjoy a sunny or partially shaded position in moist but well-drained soil.

    Amazing company. The service from start to finish was top class. Plants are strong and healthy, ordered 25 got 29 and at the price they are a bargain, with free delivery to Scotland in 4 days. Totally brilliant.

    A very good website, excellent delivery with well packed plants. Planted the hedge same day after a good soaking. Well established and florishing after a week. I believe it important to well water before and after planting, I then apply a good straw mulch and leave the plants to get on with it. I will use this company again and recommend it
