20 Portugal laurel Hedging Prunus Lusitanica 20-30cm, Evergreen Hedging Plants



20 Portugal laurel / Prunus lusitanica P9 Pots 20-30cm

Like its close relative the cherry laurel, this species from Spain and Portugal is usually planted to make a large hedge, screen or windbreak

Growing Details

Common Name: Portugal laurel
Genus: Prunus
Species: lusitanica
Skill Level: Beginner
Exposure: Full sun, Partial shade
Hardiness: Hardy
Soil type: Well-drained/light, Dry
Height: 12m+
Spread: 8m+

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

    This was my second order for hedging, like the first was delivered quickly and well packaged. The plants are bigger than stated and very health. I’m confident I will see a good large healthy hedge in a few years!
