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.
- Garden care: Remove any over-vigorous shoots that threaten the shape of established specimens in early summer, cutting them well back to within the plant's outline.
“Capable of growing in deep shade against fences, this evergreen viburnum forms a mound of leaf topped by welcome clusters of dainty white flowers that open from pink buds - from midwinter onwards”
