Portuguese Laurel hedging plants or tree (prunus lusitanica)

£20.40



The evergreen Portuguese Laurel has luxurious dark glossy green pointed leaves on beautiful bright red stems. Portuguese Laurel has small fragrant white flowers in spring and small red fruits turning purplish-black in autumn.It is hardy, good for wildlife and the berries are extremely popular with the birds and the fragrant flowers loved by the bees and butterflies. As a screen or foil to flowering plants this species works perfectly. Furthermore it flowers beautifully in the spring. The leaves on Portuguese laurel are smaller than on the more common laurel. 

Portuguese Laurel can be grown as a standard tree or coppiced on a long rotation. Cutting back encourages the sucker growth from the roots which will soon cover a large area of ground. 


PRUNING your Portuguese laurel hedge is best pruned in the spring or early summer because the hedge will then produce young shoots which will cover up any 'unsightly' leaves left by the hedgetrimmer.
