Prunus laurocerasus Caucasica - Cherry Laurel
Cherry Laurel a fast growing evergreen often used for hedging, and screening. The leaves are shiny, glossy green, oblong but smooth. It is a good alternative to leylandii hedge plants as it responds well to hard pruning, and good regrowth from its base.
