When planting the Carolina Cherry Laurel Column, it is important to choose a location that gets full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. To plant, dig a hole that is twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Carefully remove the shrub from its container and loosen any tangled roots. Place the shrub in the hole, making sure the top of the root ball is level with the surrounding soil and backfill the hole with the soil you removed earlier. Tamp it down gently and water the shrub well to help settle the soil and remove any air pockets.
When it comes to care, the Carolina Cherry Laurel Column is relatively easy to take care of, it is drought tolerant and doesn't need frequent watering, but make sure to keep the soil consistently moist. It doesn't require frequent fertilization, but you can add some balanced fertilizer in the spring to promote healthy growth. The shrub may require pruning to remove any dead or diseased branches and to shape the plant.
Expect to see the Carolina Cherry Laurel Column grow up to 20 feet tall and 4-5 feet wide, making it a great choice for privacy hedges or as a specimen plant.
