Carolina Cherry Laurel is very versatile and can be used as an upright shrub, clipped as a hedge or tall screen, sheared into formal shapes or trained as a single or multi-trunked tree. Attractive glossy dark green smooth-edged leaves densely cover the branches. The leaves smell like cherries when crushed. Small fragrant creamy-white flowers bloom late winter to midspring in short spikes. Hidden among the leaves are black berries following the flowers. Best in moist but well-drained soils. Drought tolerant once established.

Plant care

Plant in lean, well-draining soil. Water regularly during the first year to aid the plant in establishing a strong root system, frequency can be cut back once established. Fertilize with an all purpose fertilizer in the spring and prune to shape.
