Schipka Laurel

Prunus laurocerasus 'Schipkaensis'

I’m still unclear whether a Schipka laurel is the same as a cherry laurel, but anyhow the nursery tag said this would produce black cherry-like fruit. Win for the birds but perhaps not the fence? Hopefully it’s far enough away to prevent staining at least for a few years! I went with this shrub as it’s supposed to perform well in shade, and may not be as vigorous as English laurel.

    Nursery Tag

    rapid growing rounded evergreen broadleaf shrub. Height 6 to 12 feet, spread 6 to 12 feet. White flowers, black cherry like fruit.

    Gardener's Log
