The Willow-leaf Bay Laurel is a unique form of the bay tree, so well known for its wide use, often as dried leaves, in the kitchen. But this tree is a handsome garden shrub, with unique, very narrow leaves as much as 4 inches long and less than ½ an inch wide. It grows into a graceful large shrub or small tree, perhaps 12 feet tall or more. Pruning and trimming is not recommended, but the leaves are identical and it can be used with no problems at all for flavoring, just like other forms. Grow it in a woodland area, at the back of shrub beds, or even as a lawn specimen.

  • A unique natural selection of bay laurel with very narrow leaves
  • Close to 4 inches long, the leaves are less than ½ inch across, making them indeed look like willow leaves
  • Flowers in spring with greenish-yellow blooms all along the stems
  • Still perfect for use in the kitchen for flavoring – identical to commercial produts
  • This tree is truly repellent to deer, no ifs or buts

Grow the Willow-leaf Bay Laurel in all conditions from full sun to partial shade, and even in full, light shade such as beneath a deciduous tree. It will grow happily in any well-drained soil. Pruning to any significant extent is neither recommended or suggested. Truly repellent, deer will never so much as take a nibble, and pests or diseases are never seen to any serious extent.
