Flattened heads of white flowers from December to April, followed by dark blue-black fruit. This lovely, long-flowering laurustinus is perfect for brightening partly shady areas when little else is in flower. Reliable and easy to grow, the dark green foliage provides a dense backdrop against which ornamental or feature plants can more easily be seen. Viburnum tinus is an excellent and robust, lightly clipped evergreen choice for barrier, screening, or windbreak hedging with the added benefit of being attractive to wildlife.
