The glossy red berries of the Eurasian Viburnum opulus are a treat for bird life at this time of year. This plant is also trying to send out corymbs of white flowers at the tail end of this year. A valiant effort on the deciduous shoots. A useful species when considering a mixed native garden hedge. It will grow intermingled with other species to form a wildlife sanctuary beneficial to the biodiversity of suburban gardens. Consider such a mix rather than a “leylandii” line when contemplating hedge planting.
