Product Description

Perfect for Urban Settings

Here's why you should get to know Cherry Laurel:

  • Beautiful, resilient tree grows well in urban settings
  • Versatile and compact enough to use as a hedge or shrub
  • Incredible white blooms resemble cherry flowers
  • Sweet fragrance

The Cherry Tree that's also a Cherry Shrub

The versatility of the Cherry Laurel makes it a favorite among discriminating landscapers. The Cherry-or English Laurel as it's also known-can be pruned to form an ornamental hedge that will provide a showy screen for all to admire from either side. For those who love the look of a cherry without the edible fruit, the Laurel is a sweet alternative to common hedges.

Put a little English on it

Imagine lining your landscape's boundaries dressed with a hedge that's easy to care for as well as beautiful. That's what you get with the English Laurel. The rich, waxy green foliage is only outdone by the white, fragrant racemes that bloom in the spring. The soft, showy clusters of flowers give way to red berries to add the perfect accent.

Although the Cherry Laurel possesses a gentle beauty for a hedge, its ability to withstand the most challenging environments makes it a favorite among landscapers and home gardeners. Whether you plant it as a tree or incorporate it as a designer shrub, don't hedge!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: First, select a location with well-drained soil and full sun to partial shade – any area with about 4 to 6 hours of sunlight should suffice. When you’re ready to plant, dig a hole that’s about three times the width of your plant’s root ball, and place your plant.

2. Watering: Once established, your Cherry Laurel is relatively drought-tolerant, but it’s important to have a regular watering schedule for the first few growing seasons. Water about once weekly or check the surrounding soil about 2 or 3 inches down.

Very Happy!

From customer service ordering, to discussion about the free 30 day warranty to a reasonably priced year warranty, to the condition of their trees, the great packing of the Carolina Cherry Laurel, & free delivery by FedEx, the incredible lush condition of a 5-6 ft bush & the provided instruction - you can't go wrong ordering from FastGrowingTrees Cherry Laurel 'Centre Court™' Review

Love them as trees.

I don't know what bird eats the beautiful berries. The two big trees are filled with them. Easy to care for. I prune inside to let the wind pass through. Cherry Laurel 'Centre Court™' Review

Beautiful Healthy and Fast Growing

We had Laurels planted in front of our previous home that were left by the former owners. Those bushes were appx 5 years old when we moved in and around 12 when we left. They were full tall and overall healthy. SO easy to care for. We loved them! Our "new" home was in desperate need of landscape quickly. I found these and bought 6 to begin landscaping around our country porch. Purchased and planted in June 2016. We did minimal soil prep with just planting soil and mulch. Almost Daily watering during the ****** Virginia summer days. Slowed to twice weekly watering at fall. It is now November 2016 and all of the Laurels are filling out growing at a great pace with healthy deep green leaves. We have done zero to baby them along. A few that are in shadier spots are growing a bit slower in height but are growing fuller. The plants in sunnier areas are growing taller more rapidly but are not getting as full as their friends in the shade. I just bought 2 more to replace some dead azaleas. They arrived very healthy - just waiting for their leaves to pop and unfurl. Photo shows the laurel I planted 6 mos ago next to one I planted a week ago. You can see how even the fallen oak leaves piled up around themshrubs are not damaging them. Beautiful hearty shrub! Cherry Laurel 'Centre Court™' Review
