As a follow up to our post last month, the Carolina Cherry Laurel is a gorgeous evergreen tree with glossy foliage, tiny fragrant white blooms in spring, and dark berries that the birds love.
In addition to being useful in your Texas landscape as a lovely small tree, the Carolina Cherry Laurel works wonderfully to screen ugly fences or to provide year-round privacy. This picture shows one growing at our back fence.
This tree does a great job of blocking the backside of our neighbor’s wood fence, as well as providing a nesting spot for the tiny finches that make their home in these small trees.
Here is a close-up of the same tree, showing what a terrific job it does of screening ugly views and providing privacy.
