SCHIP LAUREL HEDGE DETAILS
Schip laurel has smaller leaves than other cherry laurels, so it creates a neat and clean shape when pruned.
The shrub grows up to two feet per year, so it can rapidly produce a tall and dense screen for privacy.
In the spring, the Schip laurel produces attractive stalks of aromatic white flowers.
With uniquely medium-sized and glossy evergreen foliage, Schip laurel can create a lush, layered look.
As it doesn’t thrive under direct sunlight, Schip laurel grows well at the edge of a wooded area or in other environments with dappled shade.
This Prunus laurocerasus variety was first discovered on Bulgaria’s Schipka mountain pass and was then given its name 'Schipkaensis'. Other excellent evergreen hedge options include English laurel and Emerald Green arborvitae. See our full lineup of hedge types here.
