Q.Does the Red-Tip Photinia Produce Seeds, and How Does It Reproduce

Zone 6 | Cookieg added on November 7, 2012 | Answered

I have 12 red-tips in my yard and would like to place more in other locations, but I have never gotten any new plants by reproduction. So how does the red-tip multiply?

Rooting the cuttings is much easier. As long as the stem you are cutting is healthy, you should not have any problems propagating it. Here is an article that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/photinia/growing-red-tip-photinia.htm

Sow seed in a cold frame in fall, or root semi-ripe cuttings in early summer using bottom heat. Most gardeners find it easier to root cuttings than to propagate by seed
