Design Ideas: This large broadleaf foliage shrub is the ideal background plant with a dozen uses. It's primary value is as a hedge reaching tall enough to provide a solid privacy barrier. Density of foliage makes this also suited for windbreaks. A problem solving sound attenuation and as a visual screen for front yards that reclaim public space and block out traffic noise. One of the best shrubs for screening off neighboring houses and unsightly land uses. Adaptability to shearing makes this an outstanding formal foliage plant pruned into cone or columnar shapes as well as the standard rectangular forms of hedges.

Provide well-drained soil. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy, neat appearance, prune annually to shape.

History

The fruit of Carolina laurel is valuable wild bird forage, but seed contains high concentrations of prussic acid (cyanide) which is a hazard for grazing animals, pets and children.
