Main asset

Very bright colors in spring, more upright habit than most other cultivars.


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 70's. 'Camilvy' is a selection of the nurseries Peter Van Lieshout Potcultur BV (Venhorst, Netherlands), named after the names of his girls Camily and Ilvy.

Vigorous photinia forming several times a year young shoots of a darker red than 'Red Robin', with corrugated leaves becoming dark green, well adapted for hedgerows or to form stems because of its acrotone growth.
