A small tree seen in a home garden in Fremont on 29/9/14.

Tiny white flowers and bluish black fruits.

Is it belongs to Rubiaceae?

Viburnum tinus I hope

Thanks for the id. You know them all.

Nice one. Could it be Viburnum tinus?

Yesterday got a mail regarding Viburnum page on efloraindia. Thought of sharing from my collection especially those photographs which can be inserted on this page.
Compared this ornamental species with all available on this page. Not
matching with any species including V. tinus. The nearest to me on
this page is V. suspensum.

Viburnum × burkwoodii  ??

It is matching perfectly with Viburnum suspensum.

Pictures taken in Nairobi in the first week of July.

Looks like Viburnum Species to me.

Surprisingly there is no distribution of Viburnum species in Kenya. Only option is introduced and not yet recorded.

I guess this is Viburnum tinus L. and introduced to Kenya !
