Bay laurel is easily recognized as a standard in many kitchens, used to flavor savory dishes such as soups, stews, and sauces. Native to the Mediterranean region, this slow-growing evergreen does surprisingly well in the Pacific NW, planted in the ground or in large container planters. Full sun, well-draining soil, and protection from prolonged temps below freezing will keep this pyramidal shrub healthy. It takes well to pruning and is frequently used as a topiary grown in containers. Normally reaching 40 feet in height over time, bay laurel can be kept to more reasonable heights through judicious pruning, and can be used as a privacy barrier or hedge.
