Hi can anyone tell me what this shrub is please. It has red berries now (march) it is evergreen, with some variegated leaves, and some younger leaves are red. It is similar to Photinia (Red Robin)

I suspect its Stransvaesia davidiana, now reclassified and named as Photinia davidiana.

Fabulous Bamboo, thank you so much, I didn't realise there was a variegated form of Photinia.

Well its complicated - there was a variegated form of Stransvaesia, but I've not actually seen one labelled Photinia Since they've reclassified, then its anybody's guess what they're selling them as now.

I agree - definitely Photinia davidiana - lovely.
