Buy Kalmia polifolia eastern bog laurel: A good choice for boggy soils

  • 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

    Clusters of saucer-shaped pink flowers appear in mid- to late-spring on this low-growing evergreen shrub. Suitable for a woodland garden setting or shrub border, it will tolerate full sun provided there is a reliable source of moisture.

  • Garden care Best in partial shade, it requires moist, humus-rich acid soil and an annual spring mulch of well-rotted leaf mould or composted pine needles. 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.
