Can anyone tell me what this is please? Expect it is common. Seen used as a fairly dense evergreen hedge. Flower spikes very frangrant in May.
What a "blooming June"!
Bigger picture of the whole plant will tell us whether it's basic laurel, Prunus laurocerasus or one of it's cultivars.
god i hate laurels they're like weeds
Haven't got pic of whole plant when seen. leaves looked smaller than other laurels I've seen and darker green. Whole plants were about 5' - 6' high and 3' - 4' across. not totally upright - some slightly drooping stems. Flower spikes about 6". Have Googled but I can't see one that looks the same
I thought the same Daisyheadcase until I smelt this one!
There are lots of cultivars Catbee. If you google 'Prunus laurocerasus cultivars' you should find a list.
I don't hate laurels totally like daisy but after a few nice green years in my soil they're past their best and yellowing, then some leaves go brown, then I cut those branches off and some more dies back so I cut right down to the ground and another nice bush appears fora few years and so it goes on.
