What is Photinia serratifolia
Photinia serratifolia or as known as Taiwanese photinia, Chinese photinia, or Oh-Kanamemochi (scientific name: Photinia serratifolia) is native to China and Taiwan. It grows naturally at an altitude of 1000-2500 m. Usually we see Photinia glabra.
The P. serratifolia is larger than the P. glabra. The leaf height is 10-20 cm for P. serratifolia, while 5-10 cm for P. glabra.
Red Robin (Photinia x fraseri) is a hybrid of P. serratifolia and P. glabra. Both are planted as garden hedges, street trees, and park trees.
