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 Elly cherry laurel is an excellent choice if you are looking for a particularly opaque privacy hedge. The dark green leaves of these plants are glossy and oval and resemble a Prunus Caucasica. In the months of May to June, the plant produces flowers that are arranged in white clusters and produce a strong fragrance.
Please note with small children and animals in the garden: the leaves and berries of the Elly cherry laurel are not suitable for consumption.
