Paul, our neighbour has HUGE Photinias in his front garden ... it's a wonder he gets down the path!

They also block out those bloomin' security lights on the back of houses too!

Very popular shrubs around these parts Amy ... what you might call 'low-maintenance'!

No scorch at all! Mine are all black at the new growth. They will be fine, but looks very unsightly. Yours looks amazing!

Aha, look closer at the bottom set of leaves, Karen and you will see some critter has nibbled at one of them ... and there's a hole in the set above those ... :o(

Poor old OH, he cannot see the red due to his colour blindness. He says it just looks a different shade of green ... :o(

Sandra - take a look on the RHS site at Photinia problems and you may find it's Photinia leaf spot - a sprinkling of Growmore may help ... :o)
