Planted new red tip photinia in San Antonio, Texas. Will it survive our 100 degree temperatures and drought? Leaves are showing heat stress even with watering. Thank you.

Unfortunately, this is why fall planting is usually better in warmer climates. Once established, the shrub should be fine. However, all you can do now is what you already are, keep it watered. It may also help to trim it back some.
