This variety of laurel with elegant branches naturally reaches a height of about 2 m and a spread of 1.50 m, all the while keeping its compact shape. It is of medium to slow growth.
The coppery young shoots are decorative and contrast well with the shiny dark green foliage, which is evergreen.
The creamy white flowers in May are followed by deep violet berries.
ETNA ® tolerates pruning and is recommended for the composition of moderate sized hedges (up to 0.80 m). Mixed with other shrubs, it brings an evergreen touch to beds. It can also be used in containers.
ETNA ® can be pruned without any problems and its width can be reduced to 0.80 m. Cut back in March or August - September.
