The most distinctive feature of Photinia "Volcano" is its stunning foliage, which is a deep burgundy-red when the plant is young and gradually matures to a glossy, dark green color as it ages. The leaves are oval-shaped and have serrated edges, creating a striking contrast against the plant's stems and branches.
Photinia "Volcano" is a relatively compact shrub, reaching a height and spread of around 4-6 feet (1.2-1.8 meters) over several years. It is also quite hardy, tolerating a wide range of temperatures and soil conditions, making it a versatile addition to any garden or landscape.
Light: Photinia "Volcano" thrives in full sun to partial shade, but prefers a location with bright, indirect sunlight.
Water: Water the plant regularly to keep the soil consistently moist, but avoid overwatering as this can lead to root rot. Ensure good drainage to prevent waterlogging.
Soil: Use well-draining, fertile soil that is rich in organic matter.
Fertilizer: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the spring and again in the fall to promote healthy growth and foliage color.
Pruning: Prune the plant as needed to maintain its size and shape, and to promote new growth. Prune in late winter or early spring before new growth begins.
Pest and disease control: Photinia "Volcano" is generally resistant to pests and diseases, but watch out for common issues like scale insects, spider mites, and powdery mildew.
Winter care: Protect the plant from freezing temperatures by wrapping it with burlap or providing a layer of mulch around the base of the plant.
