Buy Kalmia latifolia 'Elf' mountain laurel: Full intense white blossoms

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: reliably moist, humus-rich, acid soil (or ericaceous compost for container-grown specimens)
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Offering year round form and colour with its lustrous foliage, this acid-loving evergreen shrub looks truly spectacular when the pink-tinted buds have opened in late spring to masses of dazzling white flowers. Retaining its compact stature and growing to just a metre or so in height, it's a great little plant for areas of reliably moist shape, where little else will grow.

  • Garden care: Remove the faded blooms regularly to prolong flowering. Requires minimal pruning - cut back specimens that have outgrown their allotted space gradually over two or three years in spring. Apply a generous mulch of well-rotted leaf mould or composted pine needles around the base of the plant each spring.
