A variety of cherry laurel, Prunus Laurocerasus Genoilia is a swiss evergreen shrub, ideal for mass planting as hedging or screening, due to its dense, erect, columnar growing habit. Slower growing than the common laurel, it displays shiny dark green, fairly elongated foliage and in spring bears erect clusters of white flowers which are attractive to bees and other wildlife.
In autumn some glossy black fruits and seed capsules follow. Its compact growth forms a narrow hedge, perfect for the smaller garden or where space is an issue.
- Fertile, moist, but well-drained soil
