Red Tip Photinia

Anonymous added on December 29, 2014 | Answered

I planted my Red tip photinia last spring and it hasn't grown an inch. I mulched, watered accordingly, but no growth. Not dead, just isn't growing. I was told this was a fast growing plant.

If there's no spotting on the leaves (which would indicate one of several diseases,) it sounds like the roots just need to be encouraged a bit. Plants will grow roots before they grow leaves. Follow the cultural recommendations for photinia that follow, (make sure there's enough sun,) and try increasing the phosphorous addition.
