Prunus laurocerasus 'schipkaensis', or "Skip Laurel", is an increasingly popular screening evergreen due to its smaller size and ability to prosper in shady situations. Skip laurels are a very attractive evergreen shrub that create beautiful hedges and provide dense screening. Although fairly insignificant, Skip Laurels do produce a fragrant white flower in the Spring. Their leaves are broad, glossy and very attractive. Skip Laurels can be used in full sun to dense shade and are fairly resistant to deer browsing.
