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.

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.
