Himalanan Choke Berry
Related to the Chinese Photinia (Photinia serrulata) this small evergreen tree is widespread in southeast Asia but virtually unknown in the U.S. It is probably less cold hardy but maybe better than other Photinia in warmer zones. The leaves are not toothed. The flat clusters of white flowers followed by pink to purple fruits should make it an attractive ornamental. We would appreciate any reports from customers who experiment with this little-known Photinia species.
USDA Hardiness Zone 8-9
