How to Use Dwarf English Laurel in the Landscape
With luxuriant growth that stays green all the way to the ground, Dwarf English Laurel makes a wonderful foundation planting. Few other options deliver this much subtle charm to your façade.
This plant suits contemporary and traditional architecture alike. Keep it tightly trimmed, or let it grow naturally for an informal style.
Use one as a specimen shrub with glossy, dark green leaves between your patio and your lawn. Try a pair on either side of your garden gate.
You'll get a high-end look with a hedge along the length of your side yard. Plant them four feet apart on center. You'll measure from the center of one to the center of the next.
For faster results, order the largest size containers we have in stock. Mulch between the plants and keep newly installed hedges weeded until they grow together and touch.
They are incredible background plants with a useful spreading form. Let their good looks support plants with showy blooms and unique forms.
#ProPlantTips for Care
Plant in either full sun, or give them afternoon shade in the warmer areas. They'll need at least four hours of direct sunlight a day.
Dwarf English Laurel loves humusy, rich, slightly acidic soil. Add a few handfuls of compost to the backfill soil during planting. You'll want to add a three-inch layer of pine bark or pine straw over the roots.
Keep them watered, so their root systems remain damp. This is critical for success while the plants are young, and in times of extended drought.
Prune after flowering. You'd hate to miss the fragrant white flowers! At that time, you can control their size and to keep them trim and tidy. A manicured Dwarf English Laurel looks fabulous.
