$4.35 AU

Prunus lusitanica is a evergreen shrub or tree that grows to be 3-4 meters tall. The bark is a dark brownish-black colour. The leaves are alternating, oblong, glossy dark green above and softer below. They have a superficial resemblance to those of the bay laurel, which explains why it is frequently mistaken for one. The blooms are small and have five little white petals, and they bloom in late spring. The fruit is cherry-like that starts off green or reddish green before becoming dark purple or black when fully mature in late summer or early autumn.
