Laurel Etna (Prunus laurocerasus 'Etna' ('Anbri')) description

A glossy evergreen, Prunus Etna is similar to Cherry Laurel (Prunus laurocerasus), the older green foliage is almost exactly the same, however, Prunus laurocerasus 'Etna' ('Anbri') is a more compact variety, so ideal for sites where the Common/Cherry Laurel is just too vigorous. Upright racemes of creamy-white flowers are popular with wildlife, as are the shiny black berries found scattered over the bush in the autumn.

Most popular uses for Laurel Etna hedges

Laurel Etna will tolerate pollution, exposure, dry soils and heavy shade, though sunshine will ensure the very best warm-orange coloured foliage. Etna is a Laurel with a medium growth rate so it can be kept neat in smaller gardens. This evergreen makes a wonderful formal hedge as it is easily trimmed though it can be left a bit bushy. The leaves and stems of Prunus laurocerasus 'Etna' ('Anbri') are poisonous to livestock, so please do not plant in close proximity to fields where they may be grazing. Occasionally we'’re asked if our customers should worry about dogs and children being susceptible and it is our experience that the leaves hold no attraction to either. 

Combine Prunus laurocerasus 'Etna' ('Anbri') with

Prunus laurocerasus 'Etna' ('Anbri') should, in our opinion, be grown alone, as it looks at it's very best en masse.

Growth rate of Laurel Etna

With an average growth rate, Prunus Etna will achieve 20-40cm of growth a year. Laurel Etna is ideal for hedges of 1.5-2.5 metres in height.

Care advice for Prunus laurocerasus 'Etna' ('Anbri') hedges

We recommend cutting back this evergreen hedge twice yearly, as this will promote the growth of more new orange foliage. However, an annual trim is adequate to keep Prunus Etna in shape. Please view the Best4Hedging Care and Planting instructions in our Advice section.
