Portuguese Laurel hedge (Prunus lusitanica) description

Evergreen Prunus lusitanica displays pointed, glossy green leaves that contrast well with the maroon-purple stems. In the summer, small fragrant white flowers appear on this Laurel hedging, followed by red berries in the autumn that soon turn black. Both the flowers and berries of Portuguese laurel hedging are popular with wildlife, such as birds and bees, providing additional seasonal interest.

Most popular uses for Portugal Laurel

Prunus lusitanica creates a great privacy screen, as it is fast-growing, has a spreading habit and the foliage is compact, also making it ideal for use as a windbreak. A Portuguese laurel hedge looks fitting in a formal setting and is often used for garden situations, although it also looks lovely when planted to create an informal or cottage garden feature. Portugal laurel is a very versatile and hardy evergreen hedging variety; tolerating drought and poor, shallow soils, making it a hardier choice than even the popular Cherry Laurel.
