Prunus lusitanica - Portuguese Laurel

from £0.88

Prunus lusitanica - Portuguese Laurel has all the desirable properties of Cherry Laurel but has a smaller, pointed leaf.

Fast growing, tolerant and easy to grow it is a superb choice if you need a solid screen. It responds well to clipping and if desired, it is possible to achieve a very tight, formal hedge, more so than the Cherry Laurel - Prunus laurocerasus.

It 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.

To protect and aid establishment of Portuguese Laurel you may wish to consider a wider diameter mesh type shelter such as a Treeguard for Shrubs. The mesh type guards ensure branches can grow through the sides, maintaining the bushy habit.

Find out more about the benefits of tree shelters and information on sizing on our Tree Shelter Guide page.


Don't forget that good weed control around newly planted trees and shrubs is vital to reduce moisture stress and competition. This will improve plant survival and enhance growth.

You may prefer to use our range of mulch mats and pegs, including our 100% biodegradable BioJute Mulch Mat, in order to avoid having to spray herbicide.

Give your plants the best start possible by using our professional Controlled Release Fertiliser granules when planting.
