About Schip Laurel 

Schip laurel is a popular choice for narrow spaces needing a tall, evergreen privacy hedge. It does not grow as fast or as wide as its parent, English laurel, and it has much darker foliage. Schip laurel also tolerates more shade and colder temperatures, although they are both listed as hardy to USDA Zone 6. Schip laurel is deer-resistant and drought-tolerant once established. It does well in coastal climates and is not bothered by salt or pollution. Schip laurel has long, narrow, dark green leaves that form a beautiful screen. In spring, it blooms with fragrant white flower spikes that are attractive to pollinator bees. Later in the summer, small black fruits develop that birds eat but are toxic to mammals. It grows 1-2’ per year in ideal conditions, and grows primarily upright. Pruning once per year is plenty to maintain its shape and size. You could easily have a Schip laurel hedge anywhere from 6-12’ tall and 2-4’ wide over the long term with regular pruning.
