Replacement Plant for Photinia

Q. I have several Red Tip Photinia that I use as a screen from my neighbor. I would like to replace them with some a bush that would be about 3 to 31/2 feet tall and handle our soil an weather better. I want to spend a little time trimming them. Texas Rangers are good but need a lot of trimming. Any Suggestions?

A. Bob Morris forwarded me your message.   I am a Certified Horticulturist working in the Las Vegas area since 1992.

 I suggest you look at Dwarf Myrtle and Dwarf Youpon Holly. Both are tough evergreen shrubs growing to about 4 feet by 4 feet.

Hope this helps.
