Question About a Possible Red Tip Photina
I found an old house place (civil war era) that had what looked like red tips everywhere. Identical in every way except in the leaf structure and grows slower. Any ideas what it may be? The leaf has the same colorations and length but sort of pointed like a holly. My father who owned a nursery said he thought it was a forerunner to the red tip.
While this doesn't answer your question, I found this article on different photinia's interesting: http://www.clemson.edu/extension/hgic/plants/landscape/shrubs/hgic1081.html
