Laurus Bay Tree 200MM

Laurus ‘Bay Tree’ – 200MM

(Not currently available to be ordered)

I am Bay Tree. My family originated from the Mediterranean

Botanic Name: Laurus nobilis

Tree – Feature Tree

As a Bay Tree my aromatic foliage has been used as a culinary herb, either fresh or dried for flavouring a range of dishes since Roman times. I naturally have an upright columnar habit and adapt well to pruning which makes me a great screening hedge. I thrive both in pots and planted in the ground. Use me as a feature plant or a screening hedge. I produce masses of fluffy yellow blooms from late winter into spring. I am incredibly hardy, tolerating frost, dry conditions, exposed locations and coastal conditions.

Full Sun to Part Shade (4+ hours of direct sun)

(Can be kept trimmed to Height: 1m Width: 1m)

I am popular and will make you happy because…
