Unbelievably floriferous!

Just 3 feet tall after 10 years, this is the Kalmia for space-saving gardens!
One of the most beautiful Mountain Laurels ever, 'Minuet' is a slow-growing dwarf just perfect for small gardens and space-saving settings, with brilliant cinnamon-and-white blooms that burst from big, showy pink buds!

Just 3 feet high and wide, this native shrub is a charming accent in borders or edges, and really shines in a woodland garden. It forms a plump, rounded plant, and in late spring is unbelievably floriferous. A Littleleaf Mountain Laurel, its neat foliage looks good even when the plant isn't in bloom. But the blooms are so profuse that when 'Minuet' is in color, you can hardly see the leaves!

Happy in full sun in the North, dappled to half shade farther south, this shrub remains compact and dense, never growing rangy as larger Mountain Laurels often do. It's the perfect size for containers, where it can be moved front and center during its bloomtime to show off the masses and masses of saucer-like flowers to best effect!

Give Minuet well-drained, rich soil and plenty of water, especially the first year. A hardy native plant, it is fairly untroubled by pests and diseases, and is a low-maintenance addition to any garden. Space shrubs about 3 to 3½ feet apart. Zones 4-9. Cannot ship to WA.
