I wish to discover the difference between Photinia Ruebens and Photinia Red Robin. Which has the larger leaf and which has the denser foliage?

Red Robin, or Red Tip Photinia, gets its name from the bright red young leaves which appear each spring on the tips of every twig and stem. Red Robin is a fast-growing, vigorous evergreen shrub, with attractive deep, glossy leaves. Photinia glabra rubens is the finer leafed variety. It is a little smaller than the other hybrids and easier to trim.
