Description
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').

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
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.
More Info
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.
