The Fotinia is an evergreen shrub that will give a touch of colour to your garden. In the hot months, its leaves have a nice red shade, which during the winter and autumn turns dark green.

It's a bush that resists well the frosts, that can live both in half shade and in full sun. It needs a well drained soil and to keep the substratum humid.

They thrive best in full sun; this way you'll get the most intense colours in their leaves and the plant will be healthier.

In case you're in a very hot climate, you can place it in half shade, to avoid sunburn.

Flowering:

Blooms in spring with very striking white flowers. In autumn, with the change in colour of the leaves, it develops red berries.

Watering:

The photinias do not like waterlogged soils, try to find a place in the garden that is well cleaned. It does not like very dry soils in summer either. If your soil is like this, you can improve it by adding organic matter.

Pruning:

The months in which you can carry out the pruning are from the beginning of winter until the beginning of autumn. Don't do it late in the autumn, because if you provoke the sprouting of the plant, these tender stems could be affected by the first frosts of the winter.

Fertilization:

You have many ways of doing this, with worm humus for example, manure of any kind, as long as it is not fresh, some substrate that As for the soil, it adapts to both acids and limestone, unless it is too acidic. They are not excessively greedy for nutrients, feed them a couple of times a year, better with organic or chemical fertilisers of slow release.

Diseases:

Consider not giving too much nitrogen with your fertiliser; if you cause excessive growth, you make it more vulnerable to pests and diseases.
