Prunus lusitanica Angustifolia AGM - Portugal Laurel

Portugal Laurel - Angustifolia

Grown as a Tree

A large evergreen shrub or small tree, a relatively slow growing form with good bushy foliage of glossy dark green leaves on red stems. Spikes of small fragrant white flowers appear in late Spring on unclipped plants. Eventually, makes a dense conical tree if left unpruned.

Grown as a Hedge

Prunus lusitanica Angustifolia has smaller, darker leaves than Prunus lusitanica which makes it an even better choice for hedging and for topiary. It is also a bit bushier and has redder stems. It will thrive in any well-drained soil, even shallow chalky ones or heavy clay. It's very hardy and will grow in shade, but is not ideal for very exposed sites. Drought tolerant once established. Holds the RHS award for garden merit.
