Prunus lusitanica 'Angustifolia' Mini-std - Portuguese Laurel

Like its close relative the cherry laurel, this species from Spain and Portugal is usually planted to make a large hedge, screen or windbreak or as shown here a lovely clipped evergreen tree. It is a very beautiful shrub in its own right though, eventually making a large shapely tree if allowed to grow naturally - to about 4m high. The leaves are an attractive shade of green, reddish when young and on red stalks, while the white flowers in early summer smell sweetly of hawthorn.

It is hardier and more versatile even than cherry laurel, and withstands clipping into formal shapes.

The Royal Horticultural Society have given it their Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
