Description

Portuguese Laurel – Prunus lusitanica,

Bushy, evergreen shrub or tree with a dark green leaf.  The leaf size is much smaller than that of Prunus laurocerasus (English laurel) with leaves being 8-10cm (4 inches) long.  Portugal Laurel has reddish new shoots (stems) that look attractive against the dark green leaves.  If left untrimmed, it produces masses of small fragrant white flowers in early summer followed by small red to dark purple fruits.  Portugal Laurel makes an excellent hedging plant.

Prunus lusitanica will grown on any free-draining soil (i.e. not waterlogged) even shallow chalky soils where it can be planted where Prunus laurocerasus (Cherry Laurel) cannot.

All varieties of Prunus lusitanica will grow in full sun or partial shade.

Ultimate height: Prunus lusitanica grows to approximately 7m (20ft) tall as a hedge but in good conditions and if it is grown as a single stem tree, it has been known to grow to over 10m (30ft).

Prunus lusitanica is very hardy and will survive temperatures of -25oC.

75x100mm advanced pot, Well established – Ready to plant direct.
