Prunus laurocerasus ’Miniredia’
Prunus laurocerasus ’Miniredia’ PBR
The smallest dwarf variety of laurel on the market, with a compact, spherical shape. After 10 years of cultivation, it reaches no more than 1 m in diameter. The plant forms short, highly branched shoots and evergreen, shiny, leathery leaves. Young shoots are orange-red, contrasting nicely with the green of older leaves, which attracts attention in spring. The plant is tolerant of the soil. It grows best in sandy-loam, moderately moist soils and in semi-shaded positions. It looks good when planted singly and in groups, in exposed places. The plant is recommended for home gardens, rockeries, estate and park greenery, planting in flower beds, and for creating low hedges. Suitable for growing in containers on balconies and terraces.
