Prunus lusitanica - Lollipop

Portuguese Laurel

£94.99

This is a large, versatile evergreen shrub with elongated, glossy dark green leaves and white, early summer, cup-shaped flowers. These are produced in long, slender racemes and possess a sweet hawthorn scent.

It makes a fantastic dense hedge, screen or windbreak and forms an attractive, shapely tree if allowed to grow naturally. Its versatility means it can be grown in sun or shade, in any well-drained soil, including chalk. Dense enough to be used as a nesting site by birds, its compact growth habit means it can be easily clipped into formal shapes.

The flowers are followed by small red fruits which turn dark purple in winter.

Did You Know?

We grow and keep the majority of our plants outside on the edge of the Staffordshire Moorlands, over 650 feet above sea level ensuring a hardy plant that starts off well when planted in your garden.

Some leaves on evergreen plants can be damaged in winter but in spring, new leaves will readily replace those damaged. This is quite normal on many evergreen varieties and is preferable to plants grown with excessive protection that show cold shock once planted out and establish less satisfactorily initially.

Many perennials go ‘dormant’ which, in some cases, means that there is little or no top growth apparent between November and March. If you order perennials whilst they are dormant, they may not be visible above the soil level when purchased but will burst into life in spring.

Buying Topiary from Jacksons Nurseries

Unlike many garden centres, supermarkets and some nurseries here at Jacksons Nurseries we sell the majority of our stock all year round. Our stock is for the most part grown outdoors making it far hardier than those grown under glass and/or only sold ‘In Season’.

Here at Jacksons Nurseries we would favour a hardy outdoor grown plant every time. They are far less likely to suffer from the shock of being planted in colder conditions and they will begin to establish more rapidly the following spring. This can mean that they don’t look like a ‘picture perfect’ plant when purchased out of season but with the correct care and a little time you’ll have a wonderful plant to enjoy for many years to come.
