Plant ID please

Post by Javeo » Tue Mar 18, 2014 5:34 am

I found this plant growing under a big conifer I removed from the front garden last year, don't know what it is but it's evergreen and I do like the leaves. Anything worth keeping? Thanks in advance :)

Looks like it could be a portugese laurel, Prunus lusitanica. icon_study

Portuguese laurel. I think they have a place in any garden. Grow into lovely shrubs.
