Prunus laurocerasus 'Rotundifolia' (Large Plant)
Better known as the Cherry Laurel, this dense evergreen shrub makes a popular hedging plant. The large glossy, rounded leaves form a lovely backdrop for the elegant creamy white flower spikes in Spring. The fragrant blooms are a magnet for pollinating insects. As the flowers fade, glossy cherry-red berries take their place, providing food for hungry birds. Prunus laurocerasus 'Rotundifolia' is a useful shrub growing equally well in full sun or in the shade of mature trees. This handsome RHS AGM variety makes a superb low maintenance specimen plant for borders, woodland areas and wildlife gardens. Height: 5m (16’). Spread: 4m (13’).
