Compact Laurel Hedge Plants Description

Otto Luyken (Compact Laurel) is a super evergreen compact (up to 1.2m mature height) hedging plant suitable for all soils and situations including shade. It often flowers again in Autumn.

Compact Laurel is quite slow growing, so easy to keep once it reaches the desired height - just clip once a year in late Sept/early Oct. Whilst it will grow to 1.5m, it's very good for hedges between 0.5m and 1.5m. For a taller growing hedge, see our popular range of Cherry Laurel hedging or view our entire slection of evergreen hedge plants for a fantastic choice of Laurel alternatives.

Otto Luyken is a very hardy plant, good in all situations - and will even flower in shade. It's good for coastal positions, windy sites, even north facing spots so very easy indeed to grow in more normal conditions. Like other Laurel varieties (other than Bay Laurel), the leaves and berries are harmful if eaten.

Compact Laurel is a popular variety of Laurel hedging, but we do also have the following additional varieties - Cherry Laurel, Portuguese Laurel, Spotted Laurel, Laurel Etna, Laurel Caucasica and Bay Laurel. For information on all Laurel species, see our Laurel Hedging Guide for more information.

See also our range of low growing hedging plants.

Pot grown plants are available all year round. Bare roots are only available from november to late April/early May. Root Ball plants are available from mid-October to mid-April.

Further Information
Further Information

You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed next to the products below. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long you’re willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.

For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section. Prices shown are the price per plant unless otherwise stated.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice
