Description

Schip laurel is a popular hedge choice for its narrow growth habit and evergreen foliage. The leaves are much darker
green than English laurel, although they are the same species. Schip laurel is the most shade -tolerant of the
cherry-laurel types and can tolerate cold better as well. It is deer-resistant and has lovely white flowers in
spring that are followed with bird-friendly fruits later in the summer.

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.
