Chinese evergreen species that forms a shrub of small to moderate stature and
dense habit. Don't be dissuaded by the fact that it's a Photinia, (maybe they

come to be associated with this Genus.
inch long leaves are richly colored with generous amounts of hot pink and red
along with patches of white as well as white spotting on the bight green
portions. Very unusual color combination and especially showy during the
formation of new shoots.
