A very adaptable and fast-growing evergreen shrub that will grow in sun or shade. It is prized for its high-gloss foliage and highly fragrant flowers in spring. Adding up to 2 feet in height per year, the deep green shiny leaves form a dense evergreen shrub with a year-round “polished” look that is perfect as an accent or to frame corners in home foundations or to form a quick hedge or privacy screen. Without pruning, the Schip Laurel grows up to 15 feet tall and 6 to 7 feet wide. That said, plants can be maintained at about half those dimensions with an annual pruning or two.
