Prunus laurocerasus 'Etna' (Large Plant)

Amygdalus, Cherry Laurel

Hardy Shrub

Prunus laurocerasus 'Etna' is a dense, evergreen shrub which makes a popular hedging plant for almost any part of the garden; including shady areas, north-facing borders and coastal gardens.

When grown as a hedge, this Cherry Laurel looks smart, glossy and dense. Those shiny leaves form a lovely backdrop for the creamy white flower spikes in spring, which are a magnet for pollinating insects. As the flowers fade, glossy berries take their place, providing food for hungry birds in the autumn. Height: 2.5m (6.5'). Spread: 2m (8.2').

Grow Cherry Laurel plants in sun or shade, in any moderately fertile, reliably moist, well drained soil. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil. Plant Prunus shrubs at the same depth as they were planted in their pots. Backfill the planting hole and water well to settle the soil. When planting a Cherry Laurel hedge, position the individual plants at a distance of 75cm (2’,6") apart.
Water regularly throughout the growing season until young plants are fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant. Once established, Prunus plants require only occasional attention, removing any damaged stems and lightly trimming those that spoil the shape of the plant in summer after flowering. If grown as a hedge, Cherry Laurel can be trimmed from early to mid spring, and tolerates hard pruning when necessary. Caution: harmful if eaten.
