English Laurels – Prunus laurocerasus

Providing the area's finest Specialty Plants for landscaping and more.

"Award of Garden Merit" by the Royal Horticultural Society

English laurels, or Prunus laurocerasus, are a landscape mainstay with Nelson Nursery. This group of landscape plants have proven to be dependable evergreen shrubs.

The English laurels all have waxy, leathery, green leaves and feature numerous white flowers with small gold centers which cloak the plants in the spring. Laurels will grow well in full sun to full shade conditions and form densely foliaged plants.

Although of a moderate growth rate, it is best to allow ample room for these plants to mature in your landscape setting. Our plants are all container grown to insure adaptability to multiple soil types and conditions.
