Extremely Hardy Mountain Laurel

Bullseye is blanketed with huge clusters of striking flowers with cinnamon, purple and white coloring.
Kalmia latifolia Bullseye has a particularly lovely and striking fuscata form with spectacular dark cinnamon-purple and white coloring. You can enjoy this wonderful evergreen year-round, but early summer presents the most intense period of interest when great masses of blooms open in 4- to 6-inch clusters.

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 4 to 5 feet tall and 3 to 4 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.
