Compact Laurel Hedge, also known as Prunus laur. 'Otto Luyken' is a dense, hardy evergreen hedging species that provides interest year round with an abundance of fragrant white flowers in the spring, glossy dark green pointed foliage and black berries in the autumn that are a hit with birds.  Because of it's compact low growing habit, Prunus laur. 'Otto Luyken' is perfect for low growing hedges.

Suitable for hedge pruning with secateurs and should be done twice a year. First in March/April and again in late September/early October.

Its best not to use hedge trimmers with large leafed plants because of the damage caused to the leaves.
