The Olympic Fire Mountain Laurel forms a beautiful evergreen shrub almost 5 feet tall and 4 feet wide. The glossy leaves are attractive all year, and for weeks and weeks in spring and early summer every branch is topped with large clusters of raspberry-red flower buds that open to cup-shaped pink flowers. This bush is wonderful in bloom, and looks beautiful anywhere in the garden, from formal areas around the house to woodlands. It can also be grown for years in containers.

  • Large raspberry-red flower buds
  • Flowers open a bright, clear pink
  • Attractive evergreen foliage with wavy edges
  • Compact bush to almost 5 feet tall
  • Excellent in woodland areas or partial shade

Morning sun and afternoon shade are ideal for the Olympic Fire Mountain Laurel, but it will also grow in full sun and light full shade. The soil should be acidic and well-drained, or grow it in a container with suitable potting soil. Sandy soil enriched with rotted leaves or peat moss is ideal, or plant it on slopes or in raised beds if your soil is heavier. Mulch to conserve moisture and keep the roots cool. Removing the spent flower heads is the only maintenance recommended.
