Prunus lusitanica - the Portuguese Laurel - is an evergreen flowering cherry. The main attraction is the dark green shiny leaves.

The tiny white flowers are borne in long cascading tresses in June, and have a delicate scent. There are usually tiny purple fruitlets in the autumn - not suitable for humans but attractive to birds.

Prunus lusitanica is very easy to grow, very hardy, and can be pruned at any time. It remains a small tree, with a dense spreading habit. It is a good choice as a large patio plant, and can be treated as an alternative to the traditional patio bay tree.
