French gardeners - do you know this viburnum?

Wonky is giving me two Viburnum tinus that she has acquired - she said the label says Viburnum tinus 'le thoureil' and she was told by the nurseryman she got them from that they were 'quite special - from France'.

Googling doesn't give us any information - do any of you know this viburnum please?

    I suspect 'le Thoureil' is the town in France where the plant nursery is located.  Probably from Floriplantes.

    Hi Marlorena image  that was all we could come up with - however, confusingly the label seems to give it as a varietal name - but sometimes these things get confused image

    Not that it is any assistance but there is also a Bird Cherry called Prunus padus Le Thoureil image

    I can only find it listed on our french sites as a Prunus as Ladybird says. Maybe BL can come up with something else. I will keep trying!
