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

Very dry, not great
Review submitted by a


On 25-Jul-2016 the supplier responded:
Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback, it really does help in assessing areas where we can improve. Although I have not been in the office over the past week I can see that this has not been resolved and the missing plants sent to you.

From the notes on our system it looks as though there was a stock issue with the Choisya and thy wanted to get everything else out to you as soon as possible, with the Choisya to follow; obviously you should have been informed of this though.

With regard to the dry pots, we saturate the plants the day before they are due to be sent as not to diminish the structural integrity of the pallet. Upon first glace the pots might be dry at the surface but an inch underneath they will have been moist enough to support the plants for their journey.

If there is anything else at all with which we can help please do not hesitate to contact us again.
