Description

The Dwarf Cherry Laurel 'Otto Luyken' is an attractive evergreen shrub with lush bloom clusters. This plant is tough and hardy and extremely easy to grow. This compact Cherry Laurel was granted the prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society.

The Otto Luyken boasts shiny, dark green leaves and white bloom clusters similar to butterfly bush flowers. The size of this Cherry Laurel is much more petite than its relatives, and its aromatic leaves are much smaller too. The leaves have a sweet scent with a hint of almond. The fragrant flowers are more abundant and lush than other varieties. The flower fragrance is a pleasant, sweet scent. After the flowers fade black berries form and last into winter. These berries attract birds and other wildlife.

Great for cities and coastal areas the Otto Luyken Cherry Laurel tolerates pollution and salt spray.

This Dwarf Cherry Laurel grows in partial shade to full sun and is adaptable to just about any well-drained soil. Some shade is recommended in zones 8 and 9. This English laurel requires no pruning, but if needed prune after flowering. This Laurel is low maintenance; it is pest, deer, and disease resistant. After establishing laurels are drought tolerant. We recommend fertilizing with our balanced, slow release fertilizer when planting and in early spring for optimal growth.

Beautiful Plant!

This was a beautiful and healthy shrub that arrived so quickly! It has been so hard to find one anywhere to replace the one we lost. We were so fortunate to find this one, and we couldn't be more pleased!
