Trimming Red-Tip Photinia

How and when do you trim/prune red-tip photinia (in Austin, TX)?

ANSWERS

Prune your Photinia anytime between spring and early fall, with late spring/early summer more acceptable. Red Tips are excellent candidates for rejuvenation pruning. To rejuvenate the plant, cut it all the way back to the ground...to about 6 inches from the ground. It should grow back nicely and you can expect to see 3 to 4 feet of new growth the very first year.

Growing Red Tip Shrubs

We have red tip shrubs around our office and they are being pruned right now. What is the best procedure for planting the cuttings in another location and how large do they need to be?

Red-Tip Photinia Infection/Disease

I have a completely dead or diseased Red-tip Photinia and would like to know what salvation options I have, if any. Also, there are neighboring or adjacent Red-tips that appear to be ‘catching’ this disease and I would like to see what I can do for these degrading plants as well.
