Viburnum covers a wide range of plants of which there are a number for each situation. They can be deciduous or evergreen, and contain simple or more complex leaves, with varying coloured berries.

Most varieties of Viburnum are suited to full sun, part shade and even full shade. They do require a sheltered location, but thrive in any soil type as long as it is well drained.

A common variant found in garden centres, ‘tinus’, produces berries which are blue or black in colour through Autumn and Winter, and white/creamy white flowers in Winter and Spring.
