About the Mountain Laurel :

The Mountain Laurel, Kalmia latifolia, is a native American plant. Its natural beauty in a woodland setting is a spring delight. It is the state flower of Connecticut and Pennsylvania. As a result of years of hybridizing and research there are over 80 known varieties. Mountain Laurel is an evergreen flowering shrub. It grows upright and has beautiful tough glossy foliage. The plants will set buds as early as fall. The buds progress into dainty candy like flowers in the spring (May though July).

The plants are striking in the contrast between the buds and flowers. This plant can withstand below zero temperatures and it is sun loving. However, the root systems are fine and shallow. Therefore, there is a need to protect the roots from too much heat and fertilizer. To ensure that the Mountain Laurel you choose flourishes in your garden here are some tips: Plant high and mulch well. Provide shade for the roots with companion plants or with mulch. Water often during growth periods, do not let the plant dry out. Maintain well drained, acidic soil with ample humus.
