I bought three red tips last spring. Two are doing beautifully and the third has produced berries, is a lighter green shade and about a third of the size. It doesn't seem to grow as fast as the others. Do you think it is something other than a red tip?

the other two do not have the red berries.

It is possible the one with berries has been short of food, this encourages plants to come into flower. Or maybe it is a Female and the others are Male. If it is a named vrariety they would all be same sex. so perhaps these are seedling raised.
