Plant details

Viburnums range from deciduous to semi-evergreens and evergreens. They enjoy well drained soils in open positions and most do not like to dry out. These plants are grown for ornamental flowers, autumn good colour and clusters of bright berries, varying in colour from blue, red or black. Growing several in the same area will encourage a good display of berries. Viburnum tinus is a dense, evergreen shrub with dark and oval, glossy leaves. This is a popular choice for hedging and bears strongly fragrant pinkish-white flowers. Viburnum tinus ‘Lucidum’ is known for its particularly glossy leaves.
