Prunus lusitanica Tree

Portuguese Laurel

from From £39.99 (ex. VAT)
( £47.99 (ex. VAT) inc. VAT)
  • Common name: Portuguese Laurel
  • Seasons of interest: Year round

This hardy, evergreen tree has many uses. It 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 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. Many are despatched within 24 hours of receiving the order, but please allow up to 10 working days to be on the safe side. There is a slightly longer timescale on pleached trees or trees over 2.5m in height (all trees called Standard, Premium Standard, Heavy Standard, Extra Heavy Standard, Mature Trees or Pleached) because we have to group orders together into geographic areas for a specialist haulage contractor to deliver. All trees are packed very carefully by our experienced team and delivered using couriers who've been tried and tested over many years.

Gift trees and other trees required for arrival on a specific date can be accommodated with pleasure at no extra charge. Although it is rarely a problem, we do have to say that we accept no legal responsibility for late deliveries.

The vast majority of trees are sent on a 'no signature required' basis, so there's no need to be in to receive your order. You can give us instructions on where to leave your delivery either via the checkout or send us a separate email. For some mature or pleached trees we may contact you in advance if the delivery driver needs help getting the tree/trees off the vehicle.

Our nursery is a busy despatch centre and therefore customers need to make an appointment to collect or view trees.  For collections, despatch charges will be refunded.
