Product Information

PRUNUS lusitanica “Portugal Laurel”. Like its close relative the cherry laurel, this species from Spain and Portugal is usually planted to make a large hedge, screen or windbreak. It is a very beautiful shrub in its own right though, eventually making a large shapely tree if allowed to grow naturally. The leaves are an attractive shade of green, reddish when young and on red stalks, while the white flowers in early summer smell sweetly of hawthorn. It is hardier and more versatile even than cherry laurel, and withstands clipping into formal shapes. The Royal Horticultural Society have given it their Award of Garden Merit (AGM). Plants are despatched  as well rooted jumbo plugs, 4-5 inches high and are ready to be grown on in 9/10cm containers and should be ready to plant out in their final spaces in late spring/early summer.
