Portugal Laurel is a large, hardy, evergreen shrub/small tree. Most commonly grown as hedging this RHS Award of Garden Merit holder, has dark red shoots which open up to bear glossy dark green leaves that will grow to densely cover the shrub. During spring, long racemes of small but fragrant white flowers are produced which will become small, dark purple fruits by autumn. Easy to grow and requiring little of no maintenance, Prunus lusitanica can be pruned and shaped if required. Height: 12m (39'). Spread: 8m (26')
For instant impact try one of one of our innovative trough-grown hedges! Each trough contains a 1 metre length of pre-planted hedging to create a mature looking hedge from the very moment it is planted. With well-established root systems, you’ll find that trough-grown hedges are correctly spaced, making them much easier to plant. The healthy framework of branches are nicely knitted together, and can be trimmed to the ideal height immediately after planting. Better still, you can plant them all year round, so long as adequate irrigation is provided. If planting is delayed then trough-grown hedges can be easily maintained until you are ready, without the need for ‘heeling in’.
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.
