Product Description

Compact Laurel with Red-Bronze Foliage

Known for being more compact than its classic Cherry Laurel cousin and with splashes of red-bronze, the Volcano Cherry Laurel is a fan favorite. It's a staple in European gardens and boasts small white flowers in spring followed by small ornamental, black berries that birds love to eat.

Especially versatile due to its compact size, the Volcano Cherry Laurel grows no more than 6 ft tall and 5 ft wide, so it's perfect for filling in gaps in your landscape, complementing a row of hedges for a privacy screen, or simply using in an area where a hardy, green plant is needed.

Because of its compact nature and desire for full-partial sun, watch for planting your Volcano Cherry Laurel under more towering trees or hedgesKnown to withstand drought, salt spray, and cold conditions, the Volcano Cherry Laurel does well in almost any soil - just avoid planting it in overly moist, boggy conditions.  

The Volcano Cherry Laurel offers shiny, dark green foliage with new growth exhibiting a gorgeous bronze-red color, giving the plant its name. Get one of your own today for easy growth and rewarding color! 

Planting & Care

1. Planting: First, select a location with well-drained soil and full sun to partial shade – any area with about 4 to 6 hours of sunlight should suffice. When you’re ready to plant, dig a hole that’s about three times the width of your plant’s root ball, and place your plant.

2. Watering: Once established, your Laurel is relatively drought-tolerant, but it’s important to have a regular watering schedule for the first few growing seasons. Water about once weekly or check the surrounding soil about 2 or 3 inches down.

3. Pruning: Pruning is encouraged in spring or summer and can be used to help maintain compact shape and reduce flower blooms.
