Mountain Laurel (Kalmia latifolia) is a native North American shrub that has beautiful white or pink flowers in the late spring or early summer.
It’s evergreen, thrives in the shade and is easy to grow. All characteristics I love to use in my garden!
It is another one of the evergreens for shade that requires acidic soil, sheltered conditions, and mulch to keep the soil evenly moist.
But is generally low maintenance and disease-resistant.
