Mountain laurel shrubs (Kalmia latifolia) are a close relative of rhododendrons and azaleas. A broadleaf evergreen, Kalmia latifolia bears glossy, deep green leaves that are attractive in all seasons. But it is this shrub’s spring or summer flower display that makes it a special part of the woodlands it calls home in the eastern part of North America. Mountain laurel plants can be grown in zones 5-9 and will reach 5’-8’ in height.
