Otto Luyken laurel is an evergreen shrub used extensively for low hedge and structure plantings. It grows well in most conditions, however, in Zone 8 of the south performs best with some afternoon shade. It will grow 4 to 6 feet tall and nearly as wide. Its waxy, dark green glossy foliage will stand heavy shearing. Provides nice contrast in the landscape. An abundance of white bottlebrush-like blooms are produced in spring.
