California Bay - Umbellularia californica is hardy to zone 7
Red Bay - Persea borbonia also to zone 7
Red bay trees in the southeastern United States are dying due to the accidental introduction of the red bay ambrosia beetle that spreads a fungal infection called the laurel wilt.

In India, "bay leaf" refers to the cassia tree (Cinnamomum cassia). All three of these are in the laurel family. In the West Indies, "bay leaf" refers to the bay rum tree (Pimenta racemosa), in the Myrtaceae. Note that the unrelated mountain laurel (Kalmia latifolia), in the Ericaceae, has poisonous leaves.
Some people get an allergic reaction from contact with the foliage or the essential oils of bay laurel. Do not place bay leaves in your mouth - they can cut.
