The Elf Kalmia is a small evergreen bush reaching 3 feet tall and wide. It has attractive dark-green glossy foliage, and a compact, mounded form. During winter attractive clusters of pink buds develop and grow larger through early spring. In late May these open into pure white blooms, making a wonderful and prolific display. Grow this plant with plants like rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias to add blooms in early summer. Grow it around your home, in garden beds and in woodland areas.

  • Clusters of pink buds all through winter and spring
  • Wonderful display of white blooms in early summer
  • Attractive glossy evergreen foliage
  • Great choice for partially shaded spots
  • Grows in acidic soil conditions

Plant the Elf Kalmia in partial shade, with morning sun, or in light full shade like building shadows or beneath deciduous trees. Grow it in acid soil with a pH below 6.0, or in planters with soil for acid-loving plants. Good drainage is needed, and avoid heavy clay or wet areas. Steady moisture is desirable, but established plants have some drought resistance. Pests, diseases or deer don’t make problems, and dead-heading is the only care needed.
