Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Laurustinus is a large evergreen shrub which produces white clusters of fragrant flowers over a long period in late winter through spring, followed by fruits than turn blue-black. This Mediterranean native has leathery dark green leaves which are attractive year-round.
Laurustinus grows best in full sun to part shade, but can tolerate more shade than many other viburnums. It also enjoys moist, organic soil. This plant can be trained into a small tree or used in a shrub border, in a foundation planting, or as a screen or hedge. 'Gwenllian' is floriferous, and 'Purpureum' boasts new foliage that is purplely bronze while 'Variegatum' has very attractive creamy yellow and green leaves.
