Prunus laurocerasus - Laurel
Prunus laurocerasus - Cherry Laurel is one of the most popular hedging plants in our range.
Fast growing, tolerant and easy to grow it is a superb choice if you need a solid screen. We also grown Portuguese Laurel which has a smaller more pointed leaf.
Cherry laurel does produce flowers and berries although these are quite insignificant as the main attraction is the large, dark green glossy leaves.
Its good tolerance of shade also makes it suitable for planting in open areas of woodland or on edges if shelter or cover is required.
3 plants per linear metre in a single row is normally sufficient to create a dense screen in time.
