Virburnam tinus or opulus

Posted: 14/02/2016 at 11:09

Hi Peanuts, I'd cut back a bit if you want it bushy.

Tertley, does Sundance stay yellow in the shade? I've seen it burned in the sun but never seen one in the shade. I haven't got one, never been sure about yellow leafed shrubs though I like Euonymous 'Emerald and Gold'

I can see your point, privacy and shelter, once lost, take years to recover

Virburnam tinus or opulus

I don't think so Meomye unless you're a big chemical user and willing to kill everything else as well.

V. tinus isn't much anyway. a dark green blob most of the year and worse if the beetles turn up.

Yes, the beetle is the downside of tinus.

How about Choisya ternata, does well in a bit of shade, nice shiny leaves, no beetles, often flowers twice a year.

If the border is really large you could go for Viburnum rhytidophyllum. That's pretty big and evergreen, interesting crinkly leaves

If you want evergreen, V. tinus is the one. V. opulus is deciduous.

Tree identification?

What has it got in place of the seed pods. Those sort of details are useful for ID.

Are the trunks and the leaves in front of the trunks the same plant?

When was the photo taken? Are we looking at something with leaves on it now?

Perennial Foxglove?????
