Prunus lusitanica is a bushy, evergreen shrub or tree with a dark green leaf.  The leaf size is much smaller than that of Prunus laurocerasus. Portugal Laurel has reddish new shoots (stems) that look attractive against the dark green leaves.  If left untrimmed, it produces masses of small fragrant white flowers in early summer followed by small red to dark purple fruits.
