Sturdy and very strong vertical growth, young red shoots. To make tall hedges quickly.


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. 'Clone Pistoia' is a Tuscan selection.

'Clone Pistoia' is a selection from Tuscany. The variety is characterized by its highly erected, vigorous and strong growth, and its young bright red shoots and leaves. Under favorable conditions, 3 flushes of growth are observed per year.
