Gardening Express Releases Exclusive Shrub to the UK Market


The leading online Garden Centre, Gardening Express, has released a new novelty shrub, Photinia ‘Cassini Pink Marble’ to the UK market, ahead of rivals, by negotiating supply from the continent in advance of general release to UK growers and garden centres.

First previewed in Holland in 2007 at an international plant expo, the variety caught the eye of Gardening Express CEO Chris Bonnett, whilst visiting suppliers with the companies buyers. “Following on from the success of our new and exclusive Clematis ‘Snowbells’ that we released that year, I knew we had to have it.” commented Bonnett.

It was hoped that the variety would make up part of the 2008 range, it has however taken 2 years for sufficient stocks to become available for Gardening Express to be able to offer this special plant to its customers. All the stock available previously has been fulfilling demand in mainland Europe, mostly in France, where this new plant has it’s origins.

A sport of the ever popular, and top selling Photinia ‘Red Robin’, the foliage of ‘Pink Marble’ is extraordinary. Displaying three colours, Gardening Express’ new Photinia has very special variegated foliage displaying green, cream, pink and young red shoots at the same time. There is no other Photinia like it, which is sure to make it a winner for those gardeners seeking something a little different from the regular ‘Red Robin’ variety.

Evergreen Photinias are always very popular, be it as a stand-alone shrub, standard tree, used as a backdrop to beds and borders, or for hedging. From the dwarf ‘Little Red Robin’ variety for patio planters, to the full sized ‘Red Robin’, ‘Pink Marble’ will add a new dimension to this group of plants.

Photinia ‘Pink Marble’ is now on sale, exclusively online from or by calling 08000 33 61 61. The retail price has been set at £17.95 for a large plant in a 3 litre container.
