Rounded evergreen shrub. Bears showy clusters of 3/4" diameter white or pinkish flowers in the late spring. An outstandingly beautiful shrub when in flower, and also pleasing at other seasons with its glossy evergreen foliage and picturesque form. Slow growing and very long lived, but begins blossoming when quite small. Requires an acidic, sandy or loamy soil. Mountain laurel will grow well in full sun or partial shade. Mulching is very beneficial for the plant.

sheep laurel

native, ground cover, rock garden, dry - wet, sun - shade
e N America

A pretty little shrub with slender, upright stems and narrow, evergreen leaves. Clusters of small, intricately formed pink flowers appear in late spring or early summer. Spreads slowly to form a colony. Tolerant of partial shade and sterile, wet or dry (sandy) soil. Useful as a ground cover or in meadow plantings. Will probably compete most successfully with other plants where the soil is not too rich.
