Common Cherry Laurel Hedge - Prunus laur. Rotundifolia

Common Laurel hedging is the most common hedging used in the UK. Its easy to see why. This lush dense shrub is perfect for garden boundaries or single shrub planting. The large fleshy leaves means that laurel has good sound absorbing qualities, making your garden paradise that little more private. Candles of white flowers cover the dence branches during spring, later in the year black cherry like fruit appear. All of our Pot Grown Laurel is produced in the UK by Hedging Plants Direct.
