Portuguese laurelPrunus lusitanica
Portuguese Laurel is a dense, bushy evergreen shrub. Our UK grown plants have red-stalked dark green leaves ranging from ovate to elliptic in shape. Capable of growing up to 20m in height, Portuguese Laurel is an excellent choice for hedging and screening. In June it displays white flowers, followed by red, maturing to dark purple berries. These are harmful if eaten.
Hardier than Cherry Laurel, Portuguese Laurel can thrive even in shallow chalk soils.
If you need a tall screening tree, we can supply Portuguese Laurels with a clear stem/trunk below a head of branches.
