Portuguese Laurel (Prunus lusitanica) is a popular, evergreen, vigorous hedge laurel. The Portuguese Laurel is better than its cousins, the Common and Cherry Laurel. Its white flowers in June make this a useful shrub for massing in shade, under trees and along drives and for making dense hedging screens. Portuguese laurels are slower growing than the common laurel, but very showy with beautiful red stem colour.
Outstanding as hedging plants, and very easy to maintain.
Where to Plant
Plant about 1-2 per meter for hedge. Plant full sun to dappled shade for best results, well-draining, moist soil. Ultimate height and spread -3-5m. Approximate weight of each laurel 25 kgs.
