Add a burst of color to a low-light area of your yard with the Bullseye Mountain Laurel. This broadleaf evergreen shrub, also known as Kalmia latifolia, boasts stunning and unique flowers blooming in clusters, usually during May or June. The bronzy-purple flowers have white accents near the center and the edge. While the blooms are lovely, this shrub also features glossy reddish-bronze foliage and purplish-red stems that offset the flowers. Use this broadleaf evergreen to provide a continuous pop of color in an outdoor area year-round.

The Bullseye Mountain Laurel has a well-branched, rounded form. This shrub is a good choice to use along a foundation wall or outdoor entertaining area to define the space. Feature a single mountain laurel as a focal point in a mixed bed, or create a colorful hedge with several in a row. This shrub supports pollinators and is native to North America, which means it requires little care and attention once established. Grow the Bullseye Mountain Laurel as a perennial in zones 5 through 8.

Bullseye Mountain Laurel Care

The Bullseye Mountain Laurel loves shade, so choose a spot that receives partial sun to full shade. Shrubs in full shade may flower less, so be mindful when selecting a planting location. Bullseye prefers moist, well-drained, acidic soil. Water new plants every few days to once per week. Established plants can often rely on natural rainfall but water during a dry period. Fertilize the Bullseye Mountain Laurel each spring using a fertilizer for acid-loving plants. 

Pruning is not often necessary, but you can shape the shrub as needed during the spring, after the flowers fade. Remove the flower clusters to tidy up the look.

Bullseye Mountain Laurel Spacing

The Bullseye Mountain Laurel will spread 8 to 10 feet wide and reach 5 to 6 feet tall when mature. Create a hedge or continuous planting by spacing shrubs 8 feet apart.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
