The Chestnut Hill Cherry Laurel is the perfect low-care evergreen bush for smaller spaces and gardens. It grows just 4 feet tall and wide, so it fits into any space, and makes the perfect green background for your garden. Around your home, in beds, as edging, or as a small hedge, the glossy, deep-green leaves always look perfect. The leaves are smaller than in other cherry laurel, making the plant always look neat, and making clipping less necessary. Use it as a single plant in smaller gardens, or mass-planted to fill larger spaces in bigger gardens. It grows well in all warmer zones, from zone 6 to zone 10, and it always looks fresh and green, all year round. When you need a tough evergreen, and you don’t have a lot of room, then this is the ‘go-to’ plant.

  • Dense, compact evergreen shrub
  • Medium-sized glossy, dark-green leaves
  • Easily grown in sun or light shade
  • Very drought resistant and undemanding
  • Perfect for shorter hedges, and for smaller beds

The Chestnut Hill Cherry Laurel is very easy to grow in any garden soil, except for soils that are constantly wet. It will grow well in full sun or light shade, including the north side of buildings, as well as beneath deciduous trees. Once established it is very drought resistant, and it grows almost anywhere. It rarely suffers from any pests, and it is more disease resistant than other varieties of cherry laurel. It can be grown naturally, or pruned and trimmed for a more formal look, at almost any time of year.
