    The foliage of this fabulous new Portuguese laurel (which originates from the Azores), has made it a sought-after addition to our range. Initially emerging with a salmon-pink flush, as the leaves mature they soon turn a fresh, light green. They have a slightly curled appearance and are held on bright red petioles, so the effect is quite colourful - in an understated way. It makes a handsome, bushy specimen, and in sheltered gardens, it's perfect for hedging.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Prune in either spring or summer. Mature plants can tolerate hard pruning in spring, cutting back to the old wood.
