The Centre Court™ Cherry Laurel is an improved variety of the Carolina cherry laurel, with an upright, pyramidal form, growing to 30 feet tall and 15 feet wide within 10 to 15 years. It is a wonderful choice for barriers, screens and hedges in hot, dry regions, and for trimmed plants around your home or in your garden beds. In spring it has clusters of richly-perfumed white flowers, that make a bright show, and the glossy leaves are a light, rich green creating an attractive backdrop without the somber tones of some other types of evergreens.

  • Vigorous selection of the Carolina cherry laurel
  • Bright green evergreen foliage is sure to please
  • Perfumed white flowers in late winter and spring
  • Easily trimmed into hedges and barriers
  • Very resistant to heat and drought

Grow the Centre Court™ Cherry Laurel in full sun, partial shade or light full shade, in any ordinary garden soil that is not wet and often flooded. This plant is much more resistant to heat and drought than the European cherry laurel, and its flowers and fruit are important to native insects and birds. It has no significant pests or diseases, and it can be trimmed as often and as much as necessary. To keep flowers being produced, trim once a year only, immediately after the flowering period. For a tough, easy evergreen for difficult sites, it simply cannot be beaten.
