This Prunus laurocerasus has been cultivated in Switzerland for its erect and narrow growth. It only needs light pruning. It reaches a height of 3,50 m and a width of 1.00 m when free growing. The foliage is shiny dark green, quite elongated and resists well to low temperatures. GENOLIA ® does not thin out at the base and can stand the weight of snow thanks to its erect and strong branches. It has discrete flowers and the fruits are not very abundant. This variety is ideal for a narrow hedge.
No or little pruning necessary thanks to its naturally narrow growth. At the end of winter, if necessary.
