We are specialists in evergreen plants and we offer the widest possible range of quality and hardy varieties. English (cherry) laurel is probably the most common and reliable species.

Kleopatra® is a recent successful introduction from Hungary, made by Dr.Jozsa Milkos in 2007. This cherry laurel is a compact, graceful shrub with somewhat arching branches and rich green, evergreen leaves that emerge coppery orange just like Etna® variety. On the contrary Kleopatra® bears elongated leaves. They are quite stiff and hold themselves nicely on the branches making this plant an utterly elegant shrub.

Laurels need slightly deep and fertile, acidic, moist soil, and extra watering in frost-free periods in winter to prevent from drying out before the ground gets frozen. They will thrive in full sun or part shade, and will also tolerate being grown in full shade. Laurels seldom suffers from chlorosis (leaves turning yellow owing to lack of iron in the soil) but when it happens use a special liquid soil pH balancer to keep it acidic or add plenty of iron-rich fertilizer. Hardy to about -24°C (USDA zone 6).
