Prunus lusitanica Tree

Portuguese Laurel

from From £39.99 (ex. VAT)
( £47.99 (ex. VAT) inc. VAT)

This hardy, evergreen tree has many uses. Prunus lusitanica can pruned to create a topiary form, planted as a screen or hedge, makes a fantastic windbreak and a brilliant dark foil for other plants. The foliage is dark green and glossy and striking against new red shoots. Fragrant racemes of creamy white flowers are produced in April-May followed by red fruits that turn to black.

This useful evergreen tree will tolerate most soil types that are well-drained, including chalky soils when planted in full sun or partial shade. Exposure and heavier shade can be tolerated. Expect 5 x 6 meters in 20 years when Prunus lusitanica is grown as a single specimen. If chosen to grow as a hedging or screening plant, then we would recommend planting - 2-3 plants per metre.

Delivery Timescales

Most deliveries are made within a week of placing the order. All trees are carefully packed by our experienced team, with many despatched to our tried and tested couriers within 24 hours (please allow up to 10 days). These trees are sent on a 'no signature required' basis, so there's no need to be in. You can give instructions on where to leave them via the checkout or email us (sales@ornamental-trees.co.uk).

There is a slightly longer timescale on pleached and mature trees (trees over 2.5m in height) because we group orders together by geographic area for specialist delivery - we will contact these customers to notify them of the delivery date and whether the delivery driver needs help unloading the trees.

Gift trees and those required for arrival by a specific date can be accommodated with pleasure, although we accept no legal responsibility for late deliveries.

Our nursery is a busy despatch centre, so please make an appointment to collect or view trees.  For collections, despatch charges will be refunded.
