Best of the bunch

Macclesfield Express - - LEISURE -

Vibur­num da­vidii THE beau­ti­ful, metal­lic-look­ing blue bead-like fruits make this va­ri­ety of ev­er­green vibur­num worth grow­ing.

They fol­low flat­tened heads of white spring flow­ers, while at other times of year the dra­matic dark green leaves pro­vide a bril­liant foil for other plants.

Vibur­nums are re­li­able and easy to grow, but if you want the blue berries from this type you’ll need to plant both sexes, as it’s only the fe­male forms which pro­duce the berries.

This medium-sized shrub grows to 1.5m (5ft)
