I already had beautiful Virbunum flowers months ago, and now it seems like more are blooming. However, there are many many berries and I thought they went to berries after the flowers had bloomed.




Hi Harli. It seems likely that your Viburnums have been led astray by the weather, There are a few flowers showing on my very ancient specimen near my front gate. You are lucky to have berries on yours. Mine never produces any.

Viburnum tinus flowers from autumn all through the winter and into the spring, Harli. It also sometimes produces flowers in the summer! It's hard to know when to prune it...Yes, it should also produce berries, but mine often don't. It really is a good-value shrub to have in the garden! I am really glad I inherited mine from our predecessors.

I am glad I inherited mine as well. They run the full length of the property line and are quite lovely. Which comes first, the blossoms or the berries?

Flowers - but as your shrub proves, they are often on there at the same time! You question is a bit like the chicken and the eggs. LOL.

Even in normal weather one of our V. tinus types has at least one flower on it all year round. Lovely scent on some Viburnum too.

Yes, I have enjoyed it at every stage, but how great to have something blooming when everything else is closing down for the Winter.
