Product Information

Photinia 'Chico' is a compact, evergreen shrub, which boasts glossy, bronzed foliage, which provides your garden with a spectacular display in spring and summer. The leaves gradually change through a mix of oranges, reds, and bronzes, eventually maturing to a gorgeous and glossy green.

This slow growing shrub will only reach a height of around 40cm, making it perfect for creating low and informal hedging. Or for filling spaces in your mixed border, which will provide you with year-long interest thanks to its evergreen foliage.

'Chico' is a relatively hardy shrub and will withstand the British weather, however it will thrive when planted in a sheltered areas of the garden to protect it from strong winds.

Supplied as an established plant in a 17cm pot, ready to plant, growing to an eventual height of 40cm.

Care Information

  • Photinia prefers a sunny site but will tolerate partial shade and although frost hardy young plants should be protected in winter until established.

When Planting

  • Water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
