Description

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

  1. Portuguese Laurel Delivery. 4

    Posted by Peter Jones on 16th Mar 2019

    Delivery was very good - despatched on Thurs/Friday, received on Monday 11th March. Plants were received in good condition, ready to be planted. The plants were all within the correct height range that I ordered, but none of them has that distinctive red stem that is a feature of Portuguese Laurel - are they a variety which lacks this feature ? I have not managed to plant them yet because of storm Gareth, and I have also been recovering from a cold. Hopefully this weekend if the weather permits.

    Arrived well packed with plenty of straw packing them in. Planted them straight away - looking good at the moment - need to keep them well watered. Thanks for the prompt service.
