Kalmia Lattifolia is an exceptional, medium-sized, bushy, evergreen shrub or small tree with oval, leathery, glossy, light green to dark green to purple leaves. It blooms abundantly for several weeks in May and June. Beautiful, bell-shaped, white to pink flowers with purple markings inside, open from deep pink buds and appear in flat-topped clusters. Flowers are followed by reddish-brown fruit. Kalmia Lattifolia prefers fertile, neutral to slightly acidic, moist and well-drained soils, but is adaptable and can grow in sandy, rocky, or shallow soils. It thrives in partial shade, but tolerates full sun and full shade. Once established, it is resistant to drought. It is extremely hardy and can withstand very low temperatures. Low maintenance plant. Generally, disease-free. Kalmia Lattifolia is a beautiful flowering shrub, perfect as a specimen plant, or if planted in masses, for shrub borders and foundations. Great for informal, cottage, and woodland gardens.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
