Product details

A more recently introduced variety of cherry laurel, its foliage resembles Rotundifolia although this toughie is hardier!

Prunus laurocerasus Novita is a form of the popular Cherry Laurel that we grow at Barcham Trees as both a bush form for hedging and a standard for screening.  These specimens have a 1.8m clear stem and crown on the top, so form a very nice screen above the fence line.

The foliage of this Cherry Laurel is green, glossy and a little darker than the Rotundifolia which makes if perfect as a dense screen, even more so when kept well pruned.

Like the common Cherry Laurel, Novita does flower, however not so much as a young tree, giving much more floriferous displays of white flowers with age.

Prunus laurocerasus Novita can be planted at anywhere from 1 to 2m centres depending on how instant you would like to form your screen. The distance often needs to be a balance between how much you are looking to spend and the instant impact of the screen.  The optimum distance is usually somewhere around 1.2-1.5m spacing.

Cherry Laurel is a tough contender and can thrive on most soils, however it does prefer deep and fertile planting sites that are not prone to water-logging. As with all evergreen trees and hedges, be careful not to prune too early or late in the season; new growth, which is encouraged after pruning, must have a chance to harden up before being exposed to cold temperatures.

Mature height: 3-5m
