Mountain Laurel (Kalmia latifolia)
Mountain laurel shrubs (Kalmia latifolia) are a close relative of rhododendrons and azaleas. A broadleaf evergreen, Kalmia latifolia bears glossy, deep green leaves that are attractive in all seasons.

Mountain laurel plants can be grown in zones 5-9 and will reach 5’-8’ in height.
