The dried bay leaf can be added to stews or other foods for a earthy, peppery taste. This plant will require moderate pruning to keep a smaller height, otherwise the bay leaf plant can grow tall to reach 23 ft at full maturity if not pruned or kept as a hedge or in a container. would highly recommend transplanting these plants into larger pots at least one gallon pot depth if not 2 gallon pot depth within 3 months of receiving your plant. If you prefer a bushier plant, trim the upper portion of the plant for new growth to come out as two or three branches. If you prefer to grow the plant into a taller tree, remove a few of the lower leaves, tie it to a small wooden steak and allow the plant to mature to desired height before trimming tops.
It tolerates a variety of well-drained soil types in full sun to partial shade. It grows slowly but has been used as a hedge or as a topiary. It needs to be brought indoors in the winter in areas colder than zone 8b to prevent frost damage.
Use it as a small tree in an herb garden, or plant several for a screen or a privacy hedge. It can be pruned into a topiary. Its evergreen leaves and fissured dark gray bark make it an excellent choice as a specimen for shady locations and also give it good winter interest.
