Prunus lusitanica standard 

Viburnum Davidii       

Agapanthus Finn   

 

 

If you are looking to create a formal entranceway or border along a path or fenceline, this is a stunning plant combination.  

 

Prunus lusitanica standards are an essential addition to any formal garden, better known as Protuguese laurels. These topiary- style plants are incredibly hardy, and, if trimmed and maintained well, will add a touch of class to any property. Plant these at 1.5m-/2.5m spacing in the middle of the garden bed and under- plant with Viburnum Davidii. Davidii are a stunning plant that have leathery, lush green foliage, and discreet white flowers come springtime. They are incredibly hardy and look stunning when planted with the strappy foliage of Agapanthus Finn. Agapanthus Finn are a small white Agapanthus, and - best of all - sterile, meaning the age- old problem of self- seeding plants will not occur. The tall white flowers will add the ‘wow’ factor to this combination, and work harmoniously with the Viburnum and structure provided by the Portuguese laurels. A twice- yearly trim to shape the Prunus lusitanica, and dead- heading of the Agapanthus once flowering and finished come the first frosts make this formal combination simple and easy to maintain, while keeping the class and sophistication to impress all visitors.!

Prunus lusitanica - Portuguese Laurel

Portuguese Laurel is a magnificent hedging plant. Is a glossy evergreen with small white flowers followed by red berries. A great choice if you are looking for a hedge to stay between 1 to 2 m in height. Very tough and grows in full sun to full shade, not a real fan of sitting to wet, so free draining soil is a must.  Requires a trim twice a year, once in late spring and another early autumn. Plant them between 80cm to 1m apart. The closer you go the tighter the hedge and the faster you get it, but no need to go any closer than 80cms.
