Known also as sweet bay or bay laurel. This is the same leaf you buy dried in the herb section of the grocery store. Bay Laurel is a slow grower and is a good choice to plant in containers. If planted outside it can reach the height of 60ft if left unpruned. When pruning your tree save the leaves and dry them to use for cooking. Hardy in zones 8-11. Plant in full sun to part shade. Plants are shipped in 1 gallon sized containers.
