What is wrong with my Photinia? Help

Hello, I have 6 Photinias planted in my garden but one is looking very sad compared to the others as they were planted all at the same time. The one that doesn’t look so good is completely red all over and not growing as well no green leaves underneath at all. I have tried looking it up online but still have no answer a to what I should do to it to improve and help it. See photos below
As @amancalledgeorge says - they need an area around them cleared. The grass is just competition for water and nutrients.
They can be very hit and miss at the best of times, and those will be quite hard to keep established and growing well. If they don't have really suitable conditions, they can just turn up their toes.
I'm always surprised at how they're constantly promoted as a great shrub. I think there are so many better ones.
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
