Main asset

The dwarf form of Photinia, which naturally forms a ball without pruning.


Photinia are evergreen shrubs of East Asian origin. The fraseri hybrids were initially selected by Fraser nurseries (Alabama, 1955) and are a spontaneous cross of glabra (Japan) x serrulata (syn serratifolia, China). 'Red Robin' is the first bright colored selection in these hybrids, made in New Zealand in the 70s. 'Little Red Robin' is a dwarf selection, of Italian origin.

The only truly dwarf Photinia, compact habit and slow growth. Small dark green leaves rounded, very dark red young shoots quite flexible, requiring a well spaced and airy crop. The plant is susceptible to entomosporiosis (foliar fungus) under confined cultivation conditions.
