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.
