Finding plants that perform in Winter can be hard work, but this gorgeous Viburnum is just the thing to perk up those dull days.
Viburnum tinus produces masses of very fragrant white flowers emerging from blush pink buds in clusters right in mid-Winter - from December well into April, followed by red-purple berries. And it's evergreen too, and totally hardy, although the leaves may suffer a little cosmetic cold damage below -10C.
However, it is rarely sold in this wonderful 'standard' form, with a 90cm plant with a 50cm clear stem, and a crafted head on top, bursting with bud and flower in Spring. A fabulous focal tree on it's own, great in pairs, and even better in an avenue along a path - where the scent and colour will amaze you in Winter.

I am sorry that you are disappointed with your tree, however we do not agree with your assessment of the quality. My colleague explained in some detail and whilst the disagreement is regrettable, I think that 'dismissive' is unfair.
We showed your photos to our experts and compared them to our photo shown on the advert - and your tree looks very similar. Again, I am sorry if you feel that this conclusion is dismissive, however several senior people within the business agree that your tree is as advertised.
As advised, you are more than welcome to return the tree for a full refund.
