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

    Portugese laurel arrived within a few days as promised well packed in a box surrounded by straw to protect them. Now planted in situ and hopefully progressing well. Excellent service will certainly use this company again for similar purchases as required. Many thanks.
