Laurustinus - 2 litres
Viburnum tinus , Laurustinus, is one of the most valuable evergreens for the garden, with neat, dark green foliage providing the background to heads of usually pink buds opening sporadically to white flowers through winter and in a final burst in spring. These are sometimes followed by blue-black berries. Excellent as a space filler and screening plant. Drought resistant once established. Height and spread up to 3m. A Mediterranean native grown in Britain for at least 400 years.
Thrives in well-drained soil, flowering best in sun, with shelter from cold winds. Can be kept compact by pruning after flowering.
Bee and butterfly friendly.
