Viburnum Tinus A Hardy Evergreen Looking Good This Spring

Viburnum Tinus

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.

They can be pruned as a hedge.

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.
