Dwarf English Laurel

$44.99

A versatile and handsome evergreen shrub, very useful as a landscape accent or low informal hedging. Just as an FYI, Otto Luyken Laurel is a dwarf English laurel. The large, glossy dark green leaves cloak the very compact, broadly spreading form. Lovely when in full bloom, with clusters of tiny yet highly fragrant white flowers perfuming the garden.

Growth Habits

Slow growing; reaches 6 to 8 ft. tall and wide.

Care

Thrives in slightly deep, fertile, moist, humusy, well-drained soil; tolerates poor, sandy, or clay soils. Prefers more sun in cool climates, more shade in warmer areas. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates dry shade. Feed in early spring. Prune after flowering to shape.

Toxicity

Very Dangerous if ingested by pets and one of the least desirable snacks for deer!
