Fabulous garden design and structure awaits with this superb Portuguese Laurel shrub, which has been uniquely grafted into a standard tree, with a clear stem holding a ball of foliage.
Also known as Prunus lusitanica Angustifolia, dark glossy leaves contrast with striking red shaded new stems. You will never be left without interest from this standard, as the foliage is evergreen.
An extra layer of interest comes from dainty, fragrant white flowers that emerge in early summer on short tassels, providing year-round interest, followed by small dark berries in autumn.
Easy to grow in any well-drained soil, this variety will thrive in sun or partial shade, even tolerating dry shade if it is watered regularly.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
Supplied as an established plant in a 19cm pot, 50cm in height, with a grafted head on top.
