Schipka Cherry Laurel
Prunus laurocerasus 'Schipkaensis'
|Description||A handsome upright shrub for woodland gardens with filtered sunlight or dappled shade. Glossy, medium green foliage with a refined look on a dense, vase-shaped form that has a layered appearance. Stalks of fragrant white flowers appear in spring. Hardier than dwarf English laurel. Evergreen.|
|Light||Filtered sun, Partial shade, Partial sun|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 6 to 10 ft. tall and wide in 10 years.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Hedge, Privacy Screen, Windbreak|
|Design Ideas||Use at the edges of the woodland garden or anywhere it will receive dappled shade. This broadleaf evergreen is good for quickly screening out areas without blocking the view. Plant a row to cover the potting area or the compost pile in the garden. Lower growth tends to be looser, making it well-suited for wider beds with low to medium shrubs planted at the foreground, if the desired effect is dense foliage from top to the ground.|
|Companion Plants||Euonymus (Euonymus); Spirea (Spiraea); Heavenly Bamboo (Nandina); Holly (Ilex); Lilyturf (Liriope)|
|Care||Thrives in slightly deep, fertile, moist, humusy, well-drained soil; tolerates poor, sandy, or clay soils. Prefers more sun in cool climates, more shade in warmer areas. 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.|
