Prune photinia sometime during early spring through early fall--late spring, early summer being the best time. Unruly plants can be cut back 6 inches to the ground and will come back--annual pruning will help keep them maintained and manageable. They can take a pretty severe pruning, so you can cut them back to a manageable size without harming them.
