This bay is the Laurus nobilis.  It loves full sun, even through the heat waves.  It's a great, low maintenance tree, and can be pruned to desired shape.

It gives me great satisfaction when a recipe says to add one or two bay leaves and I just have to go outside and pull them from my tree!

Initially a house mascot after it was discovered on a Bunning's throw-out table and used as a Christmas Tree we were all surprised that the plant survived. It is now in the ground and seems to be establishing itself in the poor WA soil. I provide it wi...

Works just as well: Myrtlewood leaves. If you don't live in the S. OR coast and N. CA areas, it may be very hard to get. It's EVERYWHERE here, though. Also a good (and safe!) bug repelent for people and pets.

If you want a drought tolerent tree this is it.Ours was to the point of dead looking trunks and leaves and, with the root ball shrunk away from the pot. I nearly threw it in the compost. However, with some water it came back, unbelievable!

Or you can let it go wild. Mine started out as 2 leaves in a tube and is now bigger than my house. Bouquets garni anyone?

Good tub plant if you want to use the leaves for cooking. Mine has lived happily potted for tens years so far. Tough as a boot.
