Prunus laurocerasus schipkaensis
2-3' and 3-4' B&B avaliable for local pickup. Call 931-732-4242
Dwarf evergreen shrub has dense branching that spreads greater than height. Dark green narrow leaves form found near the Shipka pass in Bulgaria. White flowers cover the branches in the spring making the already beautiful evergreen that much better. It is perfect for foundation plantings or border screens. It loves the shade but is tolerant of most any conditions. Requires very little maintenance. Similar to Zabel but broader leaf and larger. A small pruning once a year will maintain it to desired height, or let it grow out to a huge glossy wall.
