    Hello Clare and G

    Thanks for the reply.

    I looked at the link, however, the shrub never has any berries and just stays as it looks in the photo for much of the year.

    Also, it stays at the same height all the time, roughly 6'.

    Thanks

    Kevin

    Hello

    Right, so berries are not a prerequisite.

    Does the height seem right too, yours is more of a tree and mine is more of a shrub.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Kevin. Mine is 15 years old at least. It didn't start out that big. I've got to go out now. Give it a day or two and I'm sure there will plenty more experienced gardeners along to add their expertise .

    Hello G

    If I remember correctly, mine was planted in 2007 which is why I am confused as to its size.

    Thanks

    Yes, I have a photinia red robin too, and it never has berries. It is the shrub version and is about 8 years old. Stays the same all year round, summer and winter. Yours looks very nice, @Kevin Cowans.
