Is Prunus lusitanica (Portuguese Laurel) right for you?

For some, the Portuguese laurel is an excellent choice. This plant is native to Spain, Portugal, France, and Morocco but can fare well in various other locations. It is known for its dense, even lush foliage. This plant, which can grow into a small tree or a dense evergreen shrub, depending on how you clip it, is an excellent choice for those who want a hedging plant. It has glossy dark green leaves with a leather-like feel to them. It also has a deep rhubarb colour stem that, in itself, helps this plant to stand out. When blooming, it can produce beautiful, creamy white flowers, often in the summer months.

Using It in Your Garden

The Portuguese laurel is a very versatile plant. One of the best ways to use it is to do so as a flowering hedge. It can easily be used to create a bit of privacy and to outline the boundaries of the property. It can grow in free form to create more a shrub or be trimmed and maintained well as a tree.

In all cases, this nursery plant is an excellent investment in your home and space. To learn more about it, and how well it can work for your needs, contact our team at Nurseryman. We are happy to offer guidance to you. We only sell the very best quality.
