At a glance;

Cherry Laurel (Prunus laurocerasus 'Rotundifolia') is one of the most versatile and popular hedging species. Cherry Laurel is often referred to as Common Laurel or Prunus hedging and boasts large, glossy-green foliage all year round. It is an excellent choice of hedge plant for dense evergreen hedging and makes an effective privacy screen. Cherry Laurel hedging can also minimise the effects of noise and wind and provides year-round interest to your garden. The Laurel hedging species family is the UK's most popular landscape and garden shrub and is why Laurels feature prominently in best4hedging's top ten, with Cherry Laurel consistently being our number one!

Prunus laurocerasus Hedging Description

Prunus lauroserasus ‘Rotundifolia’ hedging is more commonly known as English Laurel, Common Laurel or Cherry Laurel. This hedge plant showcases a bushy habit and attractive, polished green leaves all-year-round. Cherry Laurel produces stunning, modest creamy-white flowers appear that are popular with bees. The creamy-white flowers are followed by small, red fruits turning black in the autumn, providing a welcomed source of food for birds. With the continuously changing seasonal interest that this shrub offers, Cherry Laurel makes a beautiful decorative addition to any sized garden.

Best Uses for Common Laurel

Cherry Laurel hedge plants are a favourable choice to have in the garden for various reasons. They’re fast-growing species for a start and provides an effective privacy screen and shelter in all seasons, as the foliage is robust and evergreen. Another advantage to Prunus laurocerasus hedging is that it can tolerate pollution and arid sites, as well as dense shade, making it ideal for problem areas, such as poor soil or parts of your garden with minimal sunlight. Laurel hedging is low-maintenance and easy-to-grow but can also be pot-grown; used as an ornamental shrub to decorate patios or gardens with limited space. Also, Common Laurel can be trimmed to create a stunning formal appearance, it can also be left unpruned to establish something more natural in your landscape area. best4hedging recommend against planting Cherry Laurel as a hedge barrier to contain livestock, as the foliage of Prunus laurocerasus ‘Rotundifolia’is poisonous. Occasionally we hear concerns from our customers about whether dogs and children are at risk around Cherry Laurel hedges; however, there are no reported cases of any serious harm to pets or children. In the unlikely event of the leaves being consumed, should a reaction occur, an upset stomach would be the most likely outcome. But if you have any concerns, please contact a medical professional.

Combine Cherry Laurel Hedging With

Prunus hedging is traditionally planted as a stand-alone shrub due to its stunning, striking features and attractive appearance; it can have an aesthetic impact to your garden without relying on companion plants. Cherry Laurel has a slightly spreading habit, filling the surrounding space of its planting site and providing an attractive, bushy hedge that can be pruned into a smaller form if required. This is a common attribute for Laurel hedging.

Growth Rate of Prunus laurocerasus 'Rotundifolia'

When planted in optimum conditions, a Cherry Laurel hedge will achieve a growth of 30-60cm per year, with a final height of between 1.5 – 5 metres at maturity. If you’re looking for something with a smaller height and spread than Prunus laurocerasus, then take a look at our Hedging by Final Height department to help you choose a hedge suited to your garden.

Care Advice for Your Cherry Laurel Hedge

Cherry Laurel is a low-maintenance hedging species that requires a light trim once a year. However, if you're looking for a more formal aesthetic, you may want to carry out a second trim to keep the foliage neat. Prune your Laurel hedge in late winter or early spring, removing any damaged or diseased shoots. 

Suggested Planting Density for Common Laurel Hedging

For specific information on how far to space your Cherry Laurel hedge when planting, please see the product table below. In the 'No. Per Metre' column, you will find our recommended planting density for individual plant species and root type such as Prunus laurocerasus ‘Rotundifolia’.

Cherry Laurel Hedge Plants

Plants look healthy enough, my only issue is that I ordered a certain size and a couple of them were smaller than expected.I didn't notice the sizes as I wasn't on-site when they were delivered. The Landscapers took delivery and they were planted by the time I saw them. As laurels grow quite quickly I thought it would be lot of hassle to report it and wait for them to be swapped over.
