Answer: Photinia Fraseri is an excellent broadleaf evergreen shrub for privacy hedging. These plants can flower but they need to be quite mature before they will flower and sometimes the flowers develop into berries. You can keep both flowering and berry production to a minimum if you prune the plant back when you see flower buds forming. As a broadleaf evergreen photinia will retain its leaves for 2-3 years but will shed the oldest leaves, usually only a few at a time, to make room for new leaves. As a poolside plant it is one of the most often recommended because litter is minimal. If you pinch and prune young plants they can be trained to branch out as well as grow tall. Hope this answers all your questions.
