Product Overview

Once the powerful fragrance of its abundant large white flowers is seen and enjoyed for the first, even the most avid gardeners are sold on planting an Otto Lueken Cherry Laurel. The delicious aroma of these linear blossoms is strongly reminiscent of both almonds and maraschino cherries. Shiny, lustrous evergreen leaves continuously add life and color to planting locations, especially in gray winter months. The leaves strongly reflect sunlight and literally brighten up landscapes by redirecting light like a mirror. Otto Lueken is especially suited to neighbor other flowers since its foliage sends extra light to brighten their color. While typical Cherry Laurels can grow quite large, Otto Lueken is a dwarfing cultivar that only reaches up to 4 ft. H. This shrub grows much more in width than height as it can reach up to an 8 ft. spread. This tendency to spread while remaining low is what has led to popularity as a hedge plant, requiring very little maintenance. This Cherry Laurel reaches up to 4 ft. in height, 8 ft. Wand lives best in USDA Hardiness Zones 5 through 9. Please note that Cherry Laurels are poisonous if ingested and please take care if planting in a yard around small children. With its abundance of highly fragrant and massive white blossoms, shiny evergreen leaves, as well as dwarfing qualities, Otto Lueken can be used to fill innumerable roles in a landscape beyond hedging.

The supposedly "1 gallon" cherry laurel arrived moments ago (it was ordered 38 days ago). As you can see from the attached photo it is not 1 gallon by a long stretch, it is not even half a gallon. The pot is ~7" high and 5" in diameter. I placed a size 11 boot next to it for scale. Also, the plant is not in good health. This was a very bad purchase and it is not the product described or shown in the photo. Home Depot should send me cookies and remove this product from its website.

    Cherry Laurel Otto Luyken Shrub
    Ordered 3 Shrubs and they arrived packaged very good but they were delayed in transit a couple of days so they were very dry. I have been watering them and hope they perk up because I look forward to watching them grow and bloom.

      I’m very happy with my purchase from Home Depot that I ended up place 2 orders for the same plants, both shipments came right on time and very healthy plants. I would definitely recommend ordering plants online through Home Depot.

            The srubs are looking good and green with a Burlap covering over the pot to keep moisture and the dirt from falling out looking foward to my cheery laurels growing up.
