Product Information

Fabulous garden design and structure awaits with these superb Portuguese Laurel shrubs, which have been uniquely grafted into standard trees, with clear stems 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 these standards, 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, these varieties 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 a pair of established plants in 19cm pots, 50cm in height, with a grafted head on top.

Top Tips

To keep your standard tree looking at its best, remove any side shoots (laterals) from the trunk of the young tree in the winter. Any weak or competing shoots can also be removed from the top of the tree if needed.

Care Information

  • By keeping your standard tree in its pot, you can limit its size and keep it manageable. Spring is the best time to repot potted standards.
  • Repot your standard tree every other year. Use the same pot if you want to keep it at its current size, or up to 5cm bigger is you would like to grow it on a bit more.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and trim off any rotten roots or roots that are winding around the outside of the root ball.
  • Cut away the bottom one-third of the root ball using a pruning saw and replant using fresh potting soil or compost.
