    Have this growing , the new leaves are a bright copper colour which slowly turn green, is a shrub. height about 4ft , girth the same, really glows when the sun strikes it.Planted it some years back and can't mind the name.

    Certainly looks like Photinia we have just bought one at our local nursery for
    5.95 but have seen poorer looking specimens for twice that price in the Garden Centres.

    Photinia Red Robin.
    One of my favourite plants ever. I dragged my one up here from Lincolnshire, it was a good 6 ft tall but now it's nothing more than a stick. Guess it's just too hard for it here.
    Lovely plant though

    Default Photinia

    Homebase were selling a few off at half price yesterday........3.49 ....I couldn't resist one...but the label does say 'protect from cold drying winds' so I will have to find it a nice sheltered spot.......not easy!

    Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift, that is why it is called the present.
