Buy Viburnum tinus 'Lisarose' (PBR) laurustinus: Red buds add even more seasonal interest

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: December to April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A valuable garden staple, this evergreen shrub provides year-round interest and will produce its red buds and soft pink and white flowers, which appear in flattened clusters from midwinter onwards, at a time when colour is all the more important. Tough and tolerant of shade, it is a low-maintenance shrub that works equally well in the shrub border or large pot. It can also be used to make an informal flowering hedge.

  • Garden care: Remove any over-vigorous shoots that threaten the shape of established specimens in early summer, cutting them well back to within the plant's outline.

Best shrub in the garden


A wonderful plant. Easy care, has been in permanent flower since it was planted some 6-8 years ago. Requires a light trim once or twice a year to keep a good shape, no further care required other than a general fertiliser once or twice a year. Very hardy, as it is situated in an exposed part of the garden in the north-east of England.

Viburnum tinus Lisarose (PBR)

5.0 2


Is late SEPT too late to plant in a container.


No perfect time to do so!


Will it grow ok in a large container 42cms high 51cms wide


Yes it should be fine - the growing media will need to be refreshed every year if possible and the plant will require regular feeding with a balanced feed during the growing season.


Can I plant it now in august ready for the winter?


Yes, now is a great time to plant - but do make sure it is kept well watered during the warm weather.


is it poisonus to dogs if eaten.


I love dogs, but I am not an expert on what plants are poisonous to them, but I have checked the list on the Dogs Trust website and I could not see a Viburnum listed there. Perhaps you could double check with your vet to make sure.


Can you grow this as a standard?


Hello, This is an un-trained bushy shrub about 2 years old, so it will be difficult (but not impossible) to train it into a standard - although it will take many years to achieve a good shape. If you do have your heart set on a standard, then a better option would be the Viburnum tinus half standard we sell - please click on the following link to go straight to it.


Does it have any perfume and are there berries in winter.


Hello there No the flowers aren't scented, but yes it can have the dark blue/black fruits.

Hi What does average growth rate mean for this plant? How big is the 2lt plant and how much height and spread can I expect each year? It will be planted in rich soil between a shed, a fence and a relatively tall but sparsley leaved deciduous tree at the back of my south-facing garden. many thanks


Hello, It is difficult to be specific about growth rates as this is largely determined by external factors such as the available water, light and nutrients. The plants we currently sell are approximately 25-30cm in height.


how tall does it grow? I need 8 ft_+ evergreen shrub for windy garden, any ideas. Thanking you


Hello, This shrub sounds ideal as it eventually grows to around 3m in height and it will cope in a windy position. You could aslos consider any of the plants on the following link.


is this muntjac/deer resistant?


Just watch for rabbits. They love this in my garden. Deers don't never touch it.


Hello, Yes, this is regarded as generally unpalatable to deer, however that does not mean they might not have a nibble - particularly during a harsh winter.


Evergreens for leaf alone

The Victorians loved evergreens and they planted Aucuba japonica widely. Familiarity shouldn’t breed contempt though, for the all-green leaves of Rozannie are a high gloss rich green and red berries also follow. These long-lived shrubs grow far faster tha
