Viburnum tinus is a dark leaved evergreen is best allowed to be a little more natural in its structure as this will allow it to be festooned in clusters of white flowers during the winter months giving a much needed boost to the winter garden.
This evergreen hedging makes an amazing instant hedge and is sometimes known as Laurustinus. It has a dense habit with masses of medium sized dark green glossy leaves which are oval shaped. The flowers are in flattened clusters and are white with a faint hint of pink to the buds. They will appear continuously from the late Autumn until the Early spring. They produce a fruit which starts off as metallic blue and changes to black over time. Regular trimming of this hedge though will reduce the amount of flower that is produced and this then reduces the amount of fruit produced as well. It is advisable to trim this hedge as the flowers are fading but before the new growth appears to keep it looking at its best.
Viburnum tinus Evergreen hedging is suitable for all but the coldest parts of the United Kingdom and is able to grow in both shade and exposed coastal locations. While it can be kept clipped in to a formal shape it will be better if left as a more informal shape and will look better if allowed to be slightly more natural in its growth. If it is allowed to flower and then trimmed you will not get the fruit but you will get a better looking hedge. If allowed to grow naturally it will make a medium to large shrub. Viburnum tinus Evergreen hedging has been grown in the United Kingdom since the 16th Century.
