Mountain Laurel 'Pink Charm' - 3 Gal.

$74.99

Kalmia latifolia 'Pink Charm'

This American Beauties native is a fixture in the landscape in shaded, wooded locations and will be the backbone of shaded areas in your landscape, too. Even better, 'Pink Charm' tolerates shallower, drier soils once established allowing it to compete with water grabbing trees while looking great with its shiny deep green foliage, dense, rounded form, and superb spring flower show that starts deep pink in bud and opens to a pleasing yet strong pink color in late May and early June. 'Pink Charm' is a great cover source for woodland birds and its flowers provide a wealth of nectar for native bees.

Interesting Notes

Mountain laurel has unique cupped flowers with each stamen held under tension in a tiny dent in the petal. When the stamens are brushed by a bee or other pollinator, they spring up and coat the insect with pollen which he carries with him to the next flower. Native Range is from the rocky woods and cliffs; southeastern Maine to southern Ohio, south to southeastern Louisiana and western Florida.
