Prunus Lusitanica Angustifolia or Prunus Lusitanica Myrtifolia Standard Trees
Prunus Lusitanica Tree also known as the Portuguese or Portugal Laurel Tree. This smaller leafed variety is called Angustifolia or sometimes Myrtifolia and these trees are a full standard shaped tree with a clear stem and a nice bushy head or crown. The leaves are glossy and dark evergreen.
Fragrant white flowers on pendent racemes appear in early summer around June to July, followed by red cherry shaped fruit ripening to black. In terms of maximum height of Prunus Lusitanica Angustifolia as a full standard tree, you should note that the stem height will not change significantly. It is the the head (shrub part of tree) that will get larger. This can be pruned to shape or height desired.
Prunus Lusitanica Myrtifolia is happiest in full sun. It is very frost hardy. This lovely tree was a favourite of the Victorians who used it to create Italianate gardens at many stately homes throughout the UK. Hardly surprising then that it lends itself very well to topiary.
This Portuguese Laurel has been topiarised into a full standard shape. Its interest is in the dense elongated oval green leaves that appear on dark red stems, from the cherry family, slightly scented white flowers appear in early summer followed by red turning to black berries that are loved by birds. Half Standard Prunus Lusitanica trees are also available.
The Prunus Lusitanica Angustifolia is very easy to maintain - a couple of trims each year will keep it in shape. The Portuguese Laurel is also a wonderful evergreen hedging shrub.
