Cherry Laurel Elly
The cherry laurel 'Elly' is a new addition to our range. Prunus laurocerasus 'Elly' is wonderfully suitable for planting as a compact and narrow hedge due to its dense, slender and upright growth habit. It can therefore also be planted as a privacy hedge. It is often compared to the cherry laurel 'Caucasica' and perceived as its better version.
Ideal as a privacy hedge
The cherry laurel Elly is an excellent choice if you are looking for a particularly opaque privacy hedge. The dark green leaves of this plant are glossy and oval and are reminiscent of a Prunus Caucasica. In the months of May to June, the plant produces flowers that are arranged in white racemes and produce a strong fragrance. Beware of small children and animals in the garden: the leaves and berries of the Elly cherry laurel are highly poisonous.
