Cherry Laurel Otto Luyken
This broad-growing cherry laurel is one of the evergreen hedge plants that forms a beautiful, medium-high hedge. It is very easy to care for, has a compact habit and can grow almost anywhere.
Evergreen shrub ideal for any garden
The cherry laurel, Prunus lauroceracus, is a dense, rather spreading laurel cherry. It is an evergreen shrub that is particularly strong. Its maximum height is 1-1.25 m. The beauty of this shrub is that its high growth strength is combined with its attractive appearance. The cherry laurel is often used in gardens and serves as a hedge or area planting.
Enjoy the white flowers
The white flowers can form on this hedge as early as January. They do not open until spring and grow in graceful, upright, striking white flowers. These flowers of the cherry laurel spread a delicious fragrance. The flowers can develop again later in the year. From August you can look forward to the fruits, which are about one centimetre in size. They are almost black in colour and very poisonous, but give them a beautiful and tasty appearance.
A particularly prunable hedge
This laurel is particularly easy to prune. This makes it very suitable for low hedges and block shapes. If this Prunus is pruned regularly, it will develop almost no flowers and will therefore not produce berries.
Prunus laurocerasus 'Otto Luyken' is hardy and grows well in any soil type and in any location. For 1 square metre you need about 12 plants. For one metre of hedge you need 5 plants. The plants are grown in pots, so you can use them all year round.
We wish you much pleasure with the Otto Lyken cherry laurel in your garden.
