Olympic Fire Mountain Laurel

Description
A shade-loving native shrub, mountain laurel offers evergreen foliage and dainty spring flowers. With its large clusters of pink blooms, Olympic Fire is one of our favorites. In late spring, up to 4" clusters of blooms open against a backdrop of glossy, dark green leaves. When planted in groups, the effect is impressive. Performs best when planted in partial shade. Grows 4-5' tall with a similar spread. Zones 5-9. Kalmia latifolia 'Olympic Fire'
