The Carolina Cherry tree (Prunus caroliana) is one of the best evergreens you can find for creating privacy. It features glossy, dark-green leaves. It grows naturally in a dense, upright oval form, though it is often pruned into a hedge or screen. Carolina Cherry has a slower growth rate and requires little maintenance to look good. These are lovely trees that yield dense, fragrant clusters of showy, creamy white flowers in the spring. To some, the foliage has a scent that reminds them of maraschino cherries. It is an excellent street tree and is excellent for a border. These trees withstand heat, dry conditions, wind, and are very durable once established.
