Photina also known as Red Robin makes a lovely stand alone shrub but equally makes a really colourful evergreen hedge.
The glossy green leaves with new growth that has a deep red colour and is really eye catching. I would recommend pruning the Red Robin every year to ensure that you have a nice bushy hedge. It is not suited to a windy or exposed coastal site, but in a more sheltered position.
Plant Red Robin in full sun or part shade in well drained soil and it is quite a hardy hedge.
