Viburnum tinus

Genus: Viburnum.

Species: Viburnum tinus.

bought from Homebase January 2008, i decided i needed a bit of winter interest behind the bird table, the green envy i had planted there is perennial and you could see straight through into next doors garden - not giving the right effect. so i have planted the viburnum there instead.

full sun - part shade 3m x 3m (if not kept in check!) trim to required size after flowering.

flowers from autumn to spring which are followed by blue friuts, which can cause a mild tummy upset if eaten.

remove oldest shoots every 3 years to encourage young shoot growth.
