Fraser photinia 'Chico'
Photinia x fraseri 'Chico'
Dare we say it's Chico time? The popular Photinia x fraseri 'Chico' is a compact, rounded, evergreen shrub with upright stems. When young, this plant has a wonderful reddish bronze tinge that turns into a glossy dark green as it matures.
Sophisticated and elegant, this shrub will add colour to your outdoor space without garishness. We recommend keeping your Fraser photinia 'Chico' in a large ceramic pot on your balcony, patio or in your garden. If you're feeling a bit more ambitious though, they make great hedges and planted shrubs - this one just needs a bit of growing time.
Hardy evergreens, the Fraser photinia 'Chico' x looks beautiful all year round, and (if you're lucky) will flower in late spring.
How to care for your Fraser photinia 'Chico':
Make sure it is getting enough light - these plants can tolerate both full sun and partial shade but a balance is best. Grow in moist, well-drained soil and protect from cold, dry winds by wrapping your plant in a protective cover. These plants can cope with hard pruning and can be trimmed according to need or desire.
