Portugal Laurel, Prunus lusitanica, is most often used as a privacy hedge, pruned into an ornamental evergreen tree or wind screen. Its tough nature can endure a wide array of harsh conditions including salt, heat and drought after establishment. Deep green foliage makes Portugal Laurel both a beautiful and multi-functional species. This variety of laurel has thinner attractive dark green glossy leaves and produces fragrant white flowers in late spring/early summer and then red/deep purple berries in the fall. Berries are NOT edible If a privacy screen isn't desired, feel free to use these tall shrubs along a sunny wall, or grouped together in a garden bed as a wonderful backdrop for lower growing shrubs and perennials.
Has a bushy growing habit reaching 25ft tall & 15ft wide
Grows in full sun/part shade in a variety of soils. Does well in harsh conditions where other plants might not survive while being more tolerant of heat, wind & draught once roots are established.
