Description

Laurus Nobilis 'Miles Choice' is an improved version of the traditional Bay Tree. It has a more compact, upright form and performs exceptionally well in most gardens. Known for its vigorous growth and dense structure, 'Miles Choice' is ideal for creating neat, formal hedges or for pleaching, thanks to its slow growth rate which allows for precise shaping. Its dark green leaves provide a lush, dense backdrop, making it excellent for ensuring privacy in garden spaces. 'Miles Choice' combines functionality with visual appeal, making it a versatile choice for both ornamental and practical applications in diverse landscaping projects. This evergreen tree is part of the laurel family and is prized for its aromatic foliage, which adds flavor to culinary dishes.

Common Name: Miles Choice Bay Tree
Mature Height (meters): Can reach up to 6-8 meters but often kept much smaller, especially when pruned or grown in containers
Mature Width (meters): About 2-3 meters
Spacing: Plant at least 2-3 meters apart from other plants or structures to allow for proper growth and air circulation.
Foliage: The 'Miles Choice' variety boasts glossy, deep green leaves that are highly aromatic, especially when crushed or used in cooking. The leaves are similar to the classic Bay Tree but are often noted for being more robust and flavorful.
Flowering Period: While grown primarily for its foliage, it may produce small yellow flowers in the spring, followed by black or purple berries in the fall. However, these are generally inconspicuous compared to the foliage.
Form/Habit: This cultivar typically exhibits an upright, dense growth habit, making it suitable for a variety of landscaping designs. It can be easily shaped into topiaries, hedges, or maintained as a neat, compact tree.
Uses: Ideal for culinary use, ornamental planting, hedging, topiary, and container gardening. Its aromatic leaves are a staple in many kitchens and add a decorative touch to gardens and patios.
Sun: Prefers full sun to partial shade.
Maintenance: Requires minimal maintenance. Regular pruning can help maintain its desired shape, encourage new growth, and ensure plant health.
Water Requirement: Moderate; requires consistent watering, particularly during dry periods and when established in containers.
