Kalmia latifolia “Minuet” – Dwarf Mountain Laurel
This is a medium sized evergreen shrub (up to 1.5m high), flowering in late spring. Pink buds open from icing piping shaped buds, to gorgeous flowers with a striking maroon-red band around the inside edge.
This is a dwarf version of the usual Kalmia latifolia. It seems to thrive in the soil and climate of Karin’s Garden. The flower buds are the usual icing piping shape of a Kalmia, but the flowers are flatter and less bell-shaped than other Kalmias when fully open. The purple band inside the petals is an unusual and distinguishing feature.
