Viburnum davidii is compact, evergreen shrub ideal as an attractive groundcover plant for the front of a border in sun or partial shade. Forming a low, dome-like shape, it's an important visual 'anchor' for taller perennials and shrubs. Flattened heads of tubular, white flowers appear in May, followed (on female plants) by metallic, turquoise-blue fruit, and distinctively veined, dark green leaves.

Plants in this species can be dominantly female or male, with only the former consistently producing berries. We are unable to guarantee the sex of our plants so we advise planting in groups to ensure cross-pollination and berry production.

  • Garden care:
    Requires minimal pruning. To retain a neat, dome-like shape cut back to strong stems or the base of the plant.
    • Humans/Pets: Fruit are ornamental - not to be eaten
