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.
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?
I recently moved into a new home and am trying to decide on what shrub to use for privacy. How far apart should I plant Red-Tipped Photinia bushes, if that is the shrub I select?
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.
