Poet's Laurel - Growing Successfully in Georgia
Q: I recently read about Poet’s Laurel. Can you grow it in Atlanta successfully? The area of our yard I was thinking of gets full sun about 90% of the day.
A: Poet’s laurel, Danae racemosa, is a slow-growing evergreen shrub that sports bright red berries each winter. I've had a couple of plants in my woodland garden for four years and they seem to be happy. One of the features of this plant is its great tolerance for shade. In the sunny spot you describe the leaves will quickly scorch. Look for a darker spot and the plant will thrive.
