“Prunus laurocerasus ‘Novita’ looks grand with its large, glossy foliage that stays put all year round. The glorious evergreen leaves are supplemented by scented white flowers that appear in spring. Later on, inedible, dark fruits appear. This is a particularly hardy evergreen laurel which makes a good hedging or screening plant, although the mature options we offer make a majestic specimen tree. Prunus laurocerasus ‘Novita’ is a vigorous tree, happiest in full sun or partial shade, but it can tolerate shade. Ideal for most soils except chalky.”
