Tulsa Plant Care: English Laurel/Otto Luyken

English Laurel is a lovely soft evergreen, used extensively in the Tulsa Landscaping. Informal is its best use, but can be trimmed to facilitate a more formal bed. Tolerates shade and does well in a sunny location with a good sprinkler system. Nice plant for layering with Azaleas and other holly, and is great as a foundation shrub. Perennials look fantastic layered in the foreground.
