We are specialists in evergreen plants and we offer the widest possible range of quality plants. English (cherry) laurel is probably the most common and reliable species.

Caucasica is a healthy, vigorous, and tall shrub that can reach 4 meters under ideal conditions. Deep green leaves are broadly elliptic and glossy. Compound flowers are white, fragrant and appear in April/May, and are followed by very ornamental non-edible fruit.

Cherry laurels needs slightly acidic, fertile, moist but well-drained soil, and extra watering in frost-free periods in winter. Good mulch is essential in colder regions and after planting since it helps retain moisture. Will thrive best in semi-shade but if cultivated in good soil it does well in both full sun and deep shade. Hardy to about -27°C (USDA zone 5b)
