Kalmia Latifolia — 6 Comments

  1. Have always wanted this lovely shrub, but, I thought it was too tender, if you can grow it in Scotland then I am sure it would be fine for us in the south of England, love your garden, really beautiful……..

  2. Hi Brenda, We just hate to lose plants especially those which we are extremely fond of. Kalmia, like Rhododendrons, Azaleas and Camellias love acidic soil, do these plants also struggle to survive in your garden, if so the soil is not acidic enough. There is a fungal disease that goes for Kalmia, check out this link http://www.bartlett.com/resources/Plant-Health-Care-Recommendations-for-Mountain-Laurel.pdf, Make sure your shrub doesnt dry out especially in Summer and pick of those brown leaves.

  3. Why are the leaves on my Kalmia (freckles) going brown, I live in the South Island of New Zealand, and also how often should I water it, I love it and would hate to lose it.

  4. my mum and i are looking for the laurel mentioned above and wondered if you could give us some info on it. can we buy thru post or is there somewhere you can suggest
