Bullseye Mountain Laurel
Extremely Hardy Mountain Laurel
Kalmia Mountain Laurel is considered by many to be the most beautiful flowering native shrub of eastern North America. Our offerings of this outstanding evergreen represent the spectacular diversity in flower color of the modern selections. Much of this breeding was undertaken by Dr. Richard Jaynes in Connecticut. 'Bullseye' is one of Dr. Jaynes most outstanding achievements!
Well-formed and hardy, 'Bullseye' reaches 8 feet tall by 6 feet wide. Kalmia is slow to propagate, but very easy to grow in the garden in partial shade (especially in the South), and cool, moist, well-drained, aerated, acidic soil. Plant with the root ball high or almost above ground level, hilling up the base with a heavy mulch. Zones 4-8.
