Simply looking amazing is the viburnum tinus. A large evergreen shrub. Numerous varieties are available from basic tinus to, Spirit, Gwenllian, Lisa Rose, Purpurea and French White, Spring Bouquet. The differences are very slight and I have yet to tell them apart. I have a garden full of the basic Viburnum tinus and I love it.
Viburnum tinus provides a great backbone for a good garden.I love these hardy evergreen growing well on the north east side of my garden. Height up to 6ft.
If you have suffered the little beetle nibbling on the leaves it not too difficult to recover from and I have some perfect examples. Remove all the bottom foliage so the beetle has no where to live and can not easily climb up from the base. It will take a year but the will recover. Mine look beautiful and strong.
A good mulch and feed always helps.
