Bay Laurel Herb - 4”


Bay laurel is an aromatic evergreen tree in the flowering Lauraceae family. It features shiny, dark green oval-shaped leaves with a leathery texture that are popularly used as a kitchen seasoning.

Planted in the garden, it can reach a mature height of 25 to 55 feet, although most are kept at two to eight feet with persistent trimming.

Small clumps of yellow flowers form in spring, followed by small purple drupes that contain a single seed.

For container growth, ensure plenty of drainage material is laid down before planting. Water moderately and avoid soggy roots, which can cause permanent damage.

Use: Stews, soups and sauces. Use 3 times the amount of fresh herbs as dried.

Full sun.
