The Red Tip Photinia is a spectacular medium-sized evergreen shrub that has striking bright-red shoots in spring. These keep their color for months, and new growth later in the year has the same red coloring. It also has attractive, scented clusters of small white flowers in spring, followed by big bunches of red berries in fall and winter. it makes a perfect background shrub, growing 10 to 12 feet tall, and the same across. Planted in a row they can be used for a beautiful screen or a trimmed hedge, depending on how far apart they are placed. No matter how you use it, this reliable plant is very fast-growing, adding at least 2 feet each year, so it will soon reach its mature size.
