It's not common laurel, Prunus laurocerasus. Take a look at Prunus lusitanica, common name Portugal laurel. The leaves and red stems look like a good match. The flowers should be white, but if they're going over they might look like those in the photo.


This will start the IDs! I vote for Prunus laurocerasus. English Laurel
