Cherry Laurel Prunus caroliniana  Cherry Laurel (Carolina Cherrylaurel) Prunus caroliniana - This relative of the peach, cherry and plum is a large shrub or multi-stemmed tree producing bracts of fragrant white springtime blooms.  The fruit is edible, but not as tasty as that of its relatives, and has a dry flesh and thick skin.  The fruit has been used to treat digestive problems, but caution should be used, since the seeds contain toxic properties (like all Prunus species). The plant makes an exellent screen or hedge, and grows quickly.  Hardy to 10F (-17.7C); height: 40ft.
