Portuguese Laurel Hedging Plants

Prunus Lusitanica, Prunus Lusitanica Angustifolia

Portuguese Laurels whilst slower growing than Cherry Laurels, have many other qualities that make them perfectly suited to a boundary hedge. The Portuguese Laurel has smaller and darker green leaves than common laurel and these contrast beautifully with the almost plum coloured stems. The slower growing nature of the Portugal laurel allows for it to be trimmed neatly as a formal hedge or even as loose topiary shapes and once the desired hedge height is reached then it will only require an annual trim to keep the hedge within bounds. Portuguese laurels respond well to clipping and will grow well in most conditions being tolerant of shade and poor (even chalk) soils. The flowers of the Portuguese Laurel hedge are small white and almost fluff like but certainly add to their charm. The flowers produced in Spring in turn make way for berries which start out cherry-red and mature to a glossy black. Portuguese Laurels are evergreen and an excellent choice for a more architectural, lower maintenance formal hedge or screen.
