|'Variegatum' has leaves that are edged with creamy-yellow and needs more shelter than green-leaved forms. Viburnum tinus is an evergreen with upright growth habit, 6 to 12 feet tall, lesser spread. The glossy dark leaves are an attractive feature all year. Pink buds open into white flowers, in springtime, later producing a rounded metallic blue drupe, maturing to black.
It is suitable for screening and hedging, and is very tolerant of shade and salt spray. Suited to warmer climates, not bothered by pests or disease. Native of Europe.
