Red tip Photinia is an evergreen shrub that features young red leaves that contrast with the older green foliage. White flowers are produced in spring if the shrub has not been pruned earlier in the season. It can be clipped into a hedge or formed into a tree.

The leaves are the starring feature on this plant. Each new leaf that unfurls is a bright shade of red or bronze. As they mature, they become solid dark green. You can keep trimming the ends so the plant makes new leaves throughout the year.
