Kalmia latifolia ‘Carol’ – Mountain Laurel – 5-Gallon


‘Carol’ has bright pink buds that open to nearly pure white flowers and unusual foliage that is wavy and slightly twisted.


Mountain Laurel is widely considered to be one of North America’s finest flowering shrubs. It prefers morning sun and a cool, moist, well-mulched, acidic soil. Flowering will be heavier in full sun but the plants must be watered consistently for a few years until they get established and the soil must always be mulched.

Heath family, Ericaceae
