Once established, your evergreen Schipka Cherry Laurel (Skip Laurel) will need no maintenance at all!
This gorgeous, dense evergreen can be trained as a hedge or left unclipped to show off its naturally beautiful shape…

This evergreen is hardy and resistant in every way possible…
- Drought tolerant - no need to water after it's established
- Deer resistant - not many evergreens can say that!
- Completely pest and disease free

No matter where you plant your Skip Laurel, you'll get dense, glossy evergreen foliage.
The more you plant together, the denser the foliage becomes…

Customer Reviews & Photos
We have had rain and snow with 20 degree weather and they have been in for a mouth and seem to be doing fine. Of course time will tell.
My Skip Laurels
The packaging were nice and the plants - Skip Laurels were in good condition inside the box. They are growing strong after I removed them from pots.
Skip Laurel in a box
Ordered online from this site. 40% of the price of a discount Nursery 50 miles from me. No driving no loading in my van no cleaning my van after! 6 bushes in 3 boxes delivered to my doorstep. Planted last month and they are doing great.
Looked healthy good size but significant initial leaf drop
Looked healthy good size but significant initial leaf drop. Hopeful that it'll fill in again though!
Great healthy plant--I have good expectations that it will be the perfect thing for my yard! Highly recommend this company!
