Thnk it prudent to say there have been lots of posts about Photinias. As a hedge they could be a costly mistake. Photinias are fickle, problematic shrubs. They can die suddenly, they constantly shed leaves at an alarming rate, they can respond to pruning or they cannot...."fickle".....and they can suddenly become ugly.
I'm sure others will voice their opinions to help you decide.
I have grown a few different photinia varieties.....in the garden centres they look superb, don't they? In my experience they rarely stay that way
