The flowers carry a very strong vanilla scent that can sometimes be noticed several hundred yards away! You will be rewarded by the attractive white delicately fragrant flowers. Fresh off the tree, the flavor of leaves is unique and fun to use. If you have a Florida Sweet Bay, your cooking will have flavors folks outside Florida can never hope to duplicate. Florida Bay Laurel likes moist, acid soils. If you use Bay Laurel in your landscape, be sure plenty of water is available. If you have a moist spot on your land, plant this tree! No bugs or other pests.
