What can I purchase to treat my red tips that have spots on the leaves & eventually fall off? I am losing some of these shrubs. Thank you.

Photinia leaf spot is caused by a fungus which starts its disease cycle early in the year so practicing preventive medicine before new growth becomes infected is the way to handle this problem. Don't wait until your photinias have become heavily blighted before beginning a control program. Fungicides registered for use include Banner,
Daconil, Fore, Bayeleton, and Funginex. Apply according to label directions and you'll stop the problem before it begins.
