Prunus lusitanica

Portuguese Laurel

A broadly-spreading tree with glossy dark-green leaves and small cream flowers in spring on red twigs followed by black berries. A good screening tree and popular hedging and topiary plant, excellent in formal design. Berries are poisonous to animals. Not tolerant of wet sites. Cold and drought hardy.

Standard grades are clipped topiary plants. The specified height for these grades refers to the trunk height (e.g., 90cm), with the leafy head over and above this.
