Bay Laurel (Laurus nobilis)
The Bay Laurel tree is a Mediterranean evergreen that comes in both tree and shrub form. There are as many uses for this tree and its green glossy aromatic leaves, as its many names. It is a slow grower and responds well to trimming and can also be shaped into a desirable topiary form.
Bay Laurel trees take full sun or partial shade and appreciate moderate deep watering during the hotter months of the year. The leaves of the Bay Laurel tree are desirable for decorative use in a wreath or crown, and as a culinary use in many types of recipes. It also has household, cosmetic, aromatic, and medicinal uses.
