A classy, and very attractive fast growing ‘evergreen’ hedge shrub that offers you excellent all year around green screening and privacy! Schip laurel (Skip laurel, or sometimes called Cherry Laurel) is a great small-to-mid sized privacy barrier choice with multiple size options. It can grow up to 18″+ per year and can be sheared/ pruned to shape it nicely. These shrubs love full sun and can take half shade.
The Schip Laurel can create a beautiful solid privacy hedge of varying heights depending on the height selected, and the shearing or pruning done to them. More privacy can mean more security for your property. Planting these now at the correct spacing can create that instant peace-of-mind and privacy that everyone wants.
We recommend planting medium size 3′ – 6′ specimens every 3′ for tight hedge shrubs that are just starting to touch. Ultimately unless sheared back, these plants can potentially grow up to 8’+ high, but that takes years and any spreading will take some time as well.
