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 colorful selection in these hybrids, made in New Zealand in the 70's. 'Carré Rouge' is a natural mutation of 'Red Robin'.

'Carré Rouge' is a selection of Pépinières La Forêt (Nantes), found in mother-plants of 'Red Robin'. The variety is characterized by its compact habit, its smaller and more pointed leaves, and especially its young shoots and leaves blood red colored, very bright.
