Prunus laurocerasus ‘Caucasica’ is a vigorous, fast-growing, evergreen shrub of upright habit, with large, elliptic, glossy, pure green leaves, and fragrant, creamy-white flowers in April and May, followed by small, non-edible, black fruits in summer. One of the lesser-known members of the Laurel species. Prunus laurocerasus ‘Caucasica’ can grow in any type of soil, as long as it is well-drained. It prefers moderately fertile, slightly acidic, moist, well-drained soils in semi-shade, but is very adaptable to full shade and full sun. It may suffer from chlorosis if planted in shallow, chalky soils. Once established, it is resistant to drought, slat and cold. It can withstand very low temperatures in winter, while keeping its deep green colour. Tolerant of hard pruning. Very resilient, generally pest-free. Laurel ‘Caucasica’ is a tough and easy to grow. The lush, dense evergreen foliage and tolerance for all kinds of conditions, makes it a perfect choice for hedges and screens even in problematic sites.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
