Kalmia Carousel is an exquisite evergreen shrub that combines one of the most gorgeous cup shaped flowers appearing in clusters– each one is tattooed with a cinnamon-purple starburst. This superb shrub never ceases to impress. Dense and upright growing habit it is a vigorous grower with glossy green foliage that can reach a height and width of almost 10 feet if left to grow.
Kalmia is an extremely functional shrub for landscape projects, or just for the garden as its bloom and form make ‘Carousel’ exquisite in appearance, a perfect grouped border plant or an arresting single plant specimen.
It is a durable shrub, able to stave off cold and can grow to a good age. It is pest resistant and can tolerate a range of light conditions, including the north side of a building – however it would require afternoon shade in the south and is not suited for dry conditions.
Where to Plant
Plant Kalmia Carousel in full sun to partial shade. Partial shade best for south facing, and partial shade is recommended if planting in west situation. The mountain laurel prefers a well-drained, acid soil. Remove spent flower clusters as the blooms fade, as this will produce a better show the following spring. Prune as needed after bloom.
