Another handsome evergreen Viburnum, this one with greenish-white flowers in rounded clusters in May followed by shiny blue-black berries that birds enjoy. Seven feet tall and a little narrower, it's dense and rounded, with thick, glossy, elliptic leaves somewhat more tongue-shaped than those of Viburnum tinus. In fall and winter, the leaves, probably with more sun exposure, will achieve an attractive reddish cast, and new stems in spring will be reddish also, in lovely contrast to new, lighter green leaves. Use as a hedge or screen, or a needed evergreen in a mix of deciduous shrubs. This is a tolerant, good-looking, and easy plant.
