Viburnum tinus is a versatile evergreen shrub that is native to the Mediterranean region. It is commonly known as Laurustinus or laurustinus viburnum. The plant is a popular choice for landscaping and gardening due to its attractive foliage and showy flowers. The plant has glossy, dark green leaves that are leathery and lance-shaped. The leaves grow up to 4 inches long and 2 inches wide. The shrub produces clusters of fragrant white or pink flowers that bloom from late winter to early spring. The flowers are followed by small, dark blue berries that are attractive to birds. Viburnum tinus is a hardy plant that can tolerate a range of soil types and pH levels. It prefers well-drained soil and partial shade to full sun exposure. The plant can grow up to 10 feet tall and 6 feet wide, but it can be pruned to maintain a more compact size. The shrub is often used as a hedge, border, or specimen plant in gardens and landscapes. It is also suitable for use in mixed borders, foundation plantings, and mass plantings. Viburnum tinus is relatively low-maintenance and requires only occasional pruning to remove dead or damaged branches.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
