Prunus lusitanica ‘Angustifolia’ is a stylish evergreen shrub that you can use to create a splendid hedge. This plant is pruned in many gardens to create a pillar, and is a basic element in every elegant, stylish garden.
As the Portugal laurel is easy to trim, you can easily keep your hedge as narrow as you wish. The red petioles and small dark green leaves give the plant a lovely compact and elegant look.
It can be placed in full sunlight, and should not be watered excessively. Although this shrub is reasonably winter-hardy, some damage can occur to the leaves in extreme winter weather. However, thanks to its tremendous vigour, it will recover very quickly.
