    LAURUS

    This Mediterranean native grows slowly to 12 to 40 ft. tall and wide. Natural habit is compact and multistemmed, with a broad base; plant often resembles a gradually tapering cone. Leathery, aromatic leaves are the traditional bay leaves of cookery—oval, 2 to 4 in. long, and dark green. Clusters of small yellow spring flowers are followed by black or dark purple, 1/2- to 1-in. fruit.

    'Saratoga'

    This variety has broader leaves than the species and a more treelike habit.
