Photinia (red Robin)
What is this black spot that is over my photinia??
what should I do with it??




I have it also on my leaves, usually after winter, then with warming and growing new leaves these spots disappear. So I thought it has to do with morning freeze. But maybe somebody knows better what it is.

I was told mine was blackspot by a gardener and it looked the same but I was listening to a gardening programme I they mentioned Photinia Leaf Spot. It is mentioned here at the bottom of the page:

I don't know how you tell the difference?

Pamsco, thank you very much for useful information. So those spots have to do with cold weather, nothing serious.
