Sometimes called Laurustinus, Viburnum tinus Eve Price,, is a steady growing, bushy, evergreen shrub that flowers in winter and makes a pretty hedge plant. Ideal for a small garden and suitable for any fertile soil. In ideal conditions, it will eventually make a hedge or specimen shrub of up to 3 metres high, although it may struggle to get over 2 metres if your site is shady.

General description of Viburnum tinus Eve Price plants:
Viburnum tinus Eve Price is also known as Laurustinus. It has lush, glossy evergreen leaves that clip very well and give a perfect backdrop to the neat, flattened clusters of tiny carmine coloured flower buds that form in late summer. The bush begins to flower in October and continues through to April. The domed white flower heads bloom in waves, mingling with the delicate pink unopened buds. The berries that follow are deep blue-purple and attractive to wildlife.
It is an excellent plant for a problem areas, as it is good in shade, thrives by the sea, stands wind well and is happy in almost any soil. It is a good choice for the low, shrubby element in a windbreak, planted alongside rows of taller trees. It is also great for planting directly beneath deciduous trees.

Viburnum tinus Eve Price is unusual in that, unless the winter is very harsh, it will often still be bearing the previous year's berries when the new buds are beginning to flower. This adds to your plant's ornamental value and it is also good news for hungry birds. It is fully hardy throughout Britain, although tough winters can suppress the flowers.

History & uses of Viburnum Eve Price:
This plants other name, Laurustinus, comes from the similarity of its leaves to those of the bay laurel, which is in the genus Laurus. However, the plants are not related. Viburnum tinus in the same family as Sambucus or Elder.
Tinus is Latin for 'tenth', which refers to the shrub's habit of flowering in October, the tenth month.
Viburnum tinus originates from the Mediterranean and in particular the islands off the coast of North West Africa, which can experience extreme temperature swings and tempestuous weather conditions - not so different from Britain!
Viburnum tinus
has been cultivated in England for about 400 years and Eve Price was named after the wife of the owner of Wakehurst Place, where it was bred in the first half of the 20th century.
