Mountain Laurel--Coming Soon

3 Gallons
  • Pollinator value:  Very high.  Attracts native bees, bumble bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and more.

    One of the most beautiful native flowering shrubs, Mountain Laurel produces clusters of large, white-to-pink flowers with deep rose spots inside, blooming in late spring to early summer and offering attractive year-round foliage on stout branches that spread from short, crooked trunks.  It can tolerate a wide range of light conditions, from full sun to full shade, but is happiest in partial shade.
