Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates dry shade. Feed in early spring. Prune after flowering to shape.
HISTORY
Lore The cherry laurel is a beautiful evergreen native to Europe and parts of Asia Minor. It was brought into cultivation early on around 1576. The original species was Laurocerausus officinalis, classified by Johann Roemer, 1763-1819 of Switzerland. It was simultaneously classified by Linnaeus into genus Prunus utilizing the former inaccurate genus name of Roemer. It was imported into the United States in colonial times and since a number of varietal forms have been developed for increased cold hardiness. It remains widely grown, particularly in the south and other mild winter regions. Jade Enchantress® has been selected for its improved disease resistance, particularly compared to the very popular Prunus laurocerasus 'Otto Luyken'
