Comments: The tree is in good health. Trunk circumference was measured 10 inches above the ground (narrowest point between ground and trunk split). Multi-stemmed form is very common in this species. It appears to be generally unaffected by leaf spot, which tends to run in this species. It is a really impressive example of this species. It was probably planted in the 1980's or the 1990's.

This species is unique because during its blooming season, the younger leaves appear red and slowly fade to green. This is what gives it the name "Redtip Photinia".
