Categories: Shrub

The Otto Luyken laurel is a densely compact evergreen shrub and a favorite for foundation planting, low growing hedges or mass planting.  Virtually maintenance free and hardy can withstand cold, heat and humidity.  Tiny fragrant white flowers emerge the middle of spring covering the dark green glossy foliage followed by black fruit in the fall.  

We offer Otto Luyken 18" to 24" in a 6 gallon container.


Interesting Notes:

Common names are Cherry laurel and English laurel for the similarity to the foliage and appearance of the true laurel.
