The Carol Mountain Laurel is a specially-selected form of this native shrub, with beautiful evergreen foliage, growing 6 to 10 feet tall and wide. It makes a great foundation plant, and it thrives in beds or woodlands. The flowers begin to develop in winter, and the bright-red buds make a brilliant display in spring. By late May the pale-pink flowers begin to open, and the contrast between red and white is gorgeous, and a highlight of the season. The glossy evergreen foliage is attractive all year round, and it has a unique wavy or twisted look to the leaves. In the right soil this plant is easy to grow, and a great addition to any garden.

  • Bright red buds all spring
  • Palest-pink blooms at the end of May
  • Lovely evergreen foliage is always attractive
  • Easily grown in mildly-acidic soils
  • Perfect for foundation planting, beds or woodlands

The Carol Mountain Laurel grows in similar conditions to rhododendrons, azaleas, and other acid-loving plants. The soil should have a pH of 6.0 or less, and be rich, moist and well-drained. Full sun or partial shade is ideal, or dappled shade beneath deciduous trees. This plant is hardy in sheltered spots in zone 5, and grows well almost everywhere, right into zone 9. Pests and diseases are rare, and no pruning or special attention is needed.
