Prunus laurocerasus Rotundifolia - Cherry Laurel

Cherry Laurel

A fast growing and reliable evergreen hedge. The large glossy leaves of Prunus laurocerasus Rotundifolia are a common sight across Ireland and it is its speed of growth and its reliability that make this Laurel an easy choice. Great for a quick screen, it has a bushy, wide-spreading habit and is also good where shade is an issue. The leaves and seeds are poisonous, but are unpalatable and are generally avoided by animals, but worth bearing in mind when deciding where to plant this hedge. Tolerates some salt but not suitable for strong coastal winds. Cherry Laurel is tough and will grow in any free-draining soil. Holds the RHS award for garden merit.
