The Elliot shrub is 1 to 2 meters high and 1.50 m wide. The flowering is generous. The single white flowers, 15 mm in diameter, are grouped in corymbs of 6 to 12 flowers. The flowering takes place at the end of May and the beginning of June.

The pisiform fruits are globular or oval and measure from 6 to 8 mm in diameter. They are marked at the top of a depression in the shape of cross. They ripen in August or September. They are dark purple to shiny black in color and fall off soon after.

The results show that Photinia floribunda is well adapted under our conditions and has the potential to produce average yields around 15,000 kg/ha.
