Like lava flowing from a volcano...

Photinia Magical® Volcano

Heavily serrated, shiny red leaves flush 2-3 times per year with an eruption of color - putting Magical® Volcano in a class of its own.

This plant erupts in a blaze of color in the spring with heavily serrated, garnet-red leaves. As the leaves mature, they become a deeper burgundy with coppery-brown undertones, until the entire plant turns rich, olive green. From revolutionary breeding, and in keeping with its name, this exciting new red tip produces a color burst of new leaves 2-3 times per year. Magical®️ Volcano can be used in urban spaces with confidance of reliable performance. Does best when given protection from harsh winds in the northern extension of its growing range.
