The Nipmuck Mountain Laurel is a rounded evergreen shrub, reaching 4 to 5 feet tall and 4 feet wide in about 10 years. The long leaves are leathery and dark green, making an attractive shrub year-round. The flowers are carried in large clusters at the ends of all the branches, showing as bright red buds from late winter and through spring. When they open in June the flowers are pale pink with red markings inside them. Grow this plant around your home, in beds, beneath trees, in woodland areas or in planters and pots.

  • Rounded evergreen bush with attractive leathery foliage
  • Red buds in late winter and spring are large and attractive
  • Smothered in pink flowers with red markings through June
  • Easily grown in rich, moist, well-drained soil
  • Perfect in planters if your garden soil isn’t suitable

Partial shade, or light full shade are best for the Nipmuck Mountain Laurel. Grow it in moist, well-drained soil that is rich and slightly acidic. Established plants have limited drought resistance, but regular moisture is best. Pests and diseases are rare, and the only work needed is removing the spent flower heads, to encourage flowering the next year. Avoid trimming or pruning excessively.
