  2. Mulching: Apply a layer of mulch to retain soil moisture and suppress weeds.
  3. Pruning: Prune in late winter or early spring to shape the plant. Trim new growth for a more compact form.
  4. Fertilization: Feed in early spring with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer.
  5. Pest and Disease Control: Keep an eye out for common pests like aphids. Treat any pest or disease issues promptly.
  6. Winter Care: Photinia Red Robin is generally hardy but may benefit from mulching around the base to protect the roots in colder regions.
  7. Transplanting: If needed, transplant during the dormant season (late fall to early spring).
  8. Companion Planting: Combines well with other evergreen shrubs and flowering plants.

Additional Tips:

Monitoring Red Leaf Spot: Keep an eye out for red leaf spot disease, a common issue with Photinia. If detected, consider using fungicides as per recommendations.

Regular Inspection: Regularly inspect the plant for signs of pests or diseases and take appropriate action.

Seasonal Considerations: Adjust watering and care routines based on the season. Increase watering during hot summers and reduce it during colder months.
