Photinia 'Dark Knight' Details

Photinia ‘Dark Knight’ is a shrub often used for hedging due to its colourful and dense foliage. New growth is glossy and dark red, and ages to become mid-dark green which results in a plant with dual colouring through spring and summer. This quick growing evergreen typically reaches 3 m tall and 2 m wide, but is commonly trimmed to sizes significantly less than this. Best results with this plant are achieved when it is grown in full sun on a well-drained site. This is a reasonably hardy plant that will tolerate moderate frost, extended dry periods, some wind, and most soil conditions, barring extreme wet and dry. Photinia ‘Dark Knight’ is commonly grown as an attractive and dense hedge but is also well suited to being used for shelter and screening, and as a backdrop for smaller plants.
