Prunus laurocerasus / Cherry Laurel

Prunus laurocerasus / Cherry Laurel
Prunus laurocerasus is a large evergreen shrub. It can also be grown as a small-medium tree. As a shrub, it is ideal for screenage due to its spreading habit. The dark glossy green leaves can be up to 15cm long. In spring, it produces small white flowers which can be up to 12cm long. These are followed by cherry-like shiny red fruits which soon turn black. Prunus laurocerasus can be planted in full sun or partial shade, in a sheltered or exposed position. It prefers a moist, well-drained soil. It will grow to between 4-8m tall, with a width of 8m+.
