Design Ideas English laurel is an outstanding evergreen for foundation planting to fill tall oppressive walls and disguise crawl spaces, vents and utilities. Its dense habit has made a fine natural hedge requiring no shearing and only occasional shaping. Great choice for screening off neighbors, utility areas, driveways and unattractive land use. Often planted along fence lines to break up unattractively long spans. Bright green coloring makes an elegant background for perennial borders as well as art and fountain focal points.
Flower Color White
Foliage Color Dark Green
Companion Plants Heavenly Bamboo (Nandina); Holly (Ilex); Lilyturf (Liriope); Spirea (Spiraea); Euonymus (Euonymus)
CARE
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.
