Commonly known as the Cherry Laurel, Prunus Laurocerasus 'Rotundifolia' or Common Laurel is one of the most popular and easily recognisable varieties of hedging shrub in the UK, and it isn't difficult to see why. Throughout the year, this dense, evergreen laurel bush boasts an abundance of lush, glossy green leaves and also produces delicate flower spikes during the spring months which are guaranteed to attract bees and other pollinators. Resilient and hardy, the Cherry Laurel flourishes as well in full sun as it does in the shade of more mature trees, and its sheer versatility has earned it a well-deserved RHS Award of Garden Merit. A fantastic, low maintenance addition to borders, woodland spaces and wildlife gardens. Supplied as 40-60cm loose rooted plants. Plant 60cm apart.
