West Coast Skip Laurel is a compact evergreen shrub with a dense vase shaped habit and glossy dark green foliage.  Upright panicle clusters of fragrant creamy white flowers bloom in spring and are followed by small black drupes in summer.  In warmer climates, flowers best in part sun and rich moist well-drained soils.
