Cherry Laurel – Prunus laurocerasus ‘Novita’ 125-150cm 20ltr
Prunus laurocerasus, also known as Cherry Laurel and common laurel is an evergreen shrub with glossy dark green leaves up to 15cm in length. It is an excellent hedging plant that can cope with deep shade as well as full sun.

Small white flowers are followed by cherry-like glossy red fruits which turn black when ripe in early autumn. Prunus laurocerasus ‘Novita’ is a new variety, very similar to ‘Rotundifolia’ and ‘Zabeliana’ but denser and hardier.
