The dark, deep green of the leaves are finished in a magnificent high gloss that glistens in sunlight, adding depth and texture to the aesthetics. Then in late spring, racames of gentle white flowers appear, attracting birdlife and adding the fragrance of summer. With its dense, bushy habit, the Portuguese Laurel makes for a perfect formal hedge or screen. It’s a hardy evergreen that can be expected to grow up to 5 x 3 metres.
