Photinia davidiana 'Palette'

 

Chinese Photinia 'Palette'

Slow growing, shrubby evergreen or semi-evergreen with glossy dark green leaves boldly splashed pink & creamy-white then flushed red in autumn. White flowers in flattened flowerheads, early to midsummer. Height to 3m I would say this would not be a choice in my garden - rather scrappy looking form and variegation with undistinguished flowers.. There are better things to grow.
