If you have ample space in need of greenery and beautiful blooms, then the Carousel Mountain Laurel is your plant. This stunner boasts cup-shaped blooms in a shade of pink with purple bands. The flowers open in May and grow on burgundy stems. The glossy leaves are dark green on top with a lighter green on the underside. This plant is a broadleaf evergreen, and while the blooms will die back, the hardy foliage will stay put year-round. 

This is a dense, upright shrub with a rounded shape. Mountain Laurel is a relatively slow-growing plant, but it can grow very large. Feature this beauty in mass plantings or borders. Since the greenery lasts all year, use this shrub to cover a fence or foundation wall. 

Carousel Mountain Laurel Care

Plant the Carousel Mountain Laurel in part shade; although this beauty can live in full sun, it may have limited growth in a sunnier location. Rich, slightly acidic soil that is moist but well-drained will support this shrub. This plant prefers damp conditions, so water when the top few inches dry out. Mountain Laurel is drought-tolerant once established. Feed this plant in the spring using an acid fertilizer, like one formulated for azaleas and rhododendrons to promote plenty of blooms. 

Prune this shrub to maintain the shape as needed after the flowers die back. This is a slow-growing plant that generally does not need much trimming. Mountain Laurel is hardy and can handle a rejuvenating cut if the plant becomes too large or leggy. Plant in an area protected from high winds that can damage the branches.

Carousel Mountain Laurel Spacing

Carousel Mountain Laurel is an upright plant with a rounded shape that will reach 8 to 10 feet tall and wide. Space plants 4 to 6 feet apart to create a very full and dense planting.

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.
