The Crestwood Bay Laurel is a selected form of the bay tree, which gives us the bay leaves used in cooking. It is also a handsome evergreen, with leathery leaves that are almost circular, but with the same rich fragrance of common varieties. It is also much more floriferous, producing many clusters of fragrant, pale yellow flowers all along the branches in spring. A great plant for a truly solid hedge, for pyramids, poodles and spirals, and widely used in formal gardening. However it is also a graceful and elegant large shrub or tree when left untrimmed. So give yourself a break and let it grow as it wishes to, usually becoming a multi-stem small tree with arching branches – you can of course still harvest the leaves

  • A selected form of the famous bay tree for cooking
  • Rounded, almost circular leaves give it a distinctive look
  • Clusters of fragrant pale-yellow blooms in spring
  • Much more inclined to put on a big flower display than other varieties
  • One of the most deer-resistant shrubs around – deer truly hate the smell

Plant your Crestwood Bay Laurel in full sun, partial shade or very light full shade beneath deciduous trees. It is totally deer resistant (yes, it really is), has no pests or diseases and grows in just about any soil, as long as it is well-drained. Trim between late spring and mid-fall if you are going to do that.
