Partial Sun

The Keepsake Kalmia is a medium-sized evergreen shrub that will grow to 4 or 5 feet tall and wide. The attractive glossy leaves are rich green all year round, and the pink flower buds are showy for months, through winter and early spring. They open into unique 5-sided flower cups, in dark pink with detailed white markings – a gorgeous bloom to gaze deeply into. This showy plant grows in the same conditions as azaleas, rhododendrons and camellias, and is a great addition to your garden.

  • Dark pink buds in winter and early spring
  • Stunning early-summer blooms of dark-pink and white
  • Year-round attractive evergreen foliage
  • Grows well in partial shade or beneath trees
  • Does best in acid soils

The Keepsake Kalmia should be planted in partial shade, with morning sun only, or in light full shade, like the north side of a building, or beneath deciduous trees. It needs acid soil with a pH below 6.0, and moist, well-drained soil. Avoid clay soils and wet places, but water regularly. Pests and diseases are rare, and deer won’t eat it. The only attention needed is to remove the spent flowers as soon as they have finished blooming, without cutting off leaves. Avoid pruning, which can reduce bloom production.
