Bell-shaped flowers in a lovely shade of pink bloom during the spring and make the Pink Charm Mountain Laurel an eye-catching plant. The Kalmia lat. 'Pink Charm' is a prolific bloomer; this shrub will be covered with flowers by late spring. This plant is a broadleaf evergreen, so the dark green, elliptical-shaped foliage stays in place during the winter for year-round color and interest.

Mountain Laurel is native to North America, and this plant will thrive once acclimated. The multi-branched growth habit creates a dense rounded form. Mountain Laurel prefers shady conditions and is a great shrub to feature in beds, borders, and mass plantings. Pollinators including bees frequent the flowers. The Pink Charm Mountain Laurel grows as a perennial in zones 4 through 8.

Pink Charm Mountain Laurel Care

This plant is somewhat particular about the space it calls home and will thrive with proper care. Plant it in partial to full shade for best results. This shrub blooms best with 4 hours of sunlight. Plant it in acidic soil that is well drained. This plant has a shallow root system, and the crown should be kept even with the ground level. Water weekly for the first growing season. Established plants only need water during a dry period.

Remove the flower clusters when the blooms fade to encourage more growth and keep the plant looking bushy. Feed Mountain Laurel with an acidic fertilizer in the early spring before growth appears.

Pink Charm Mountain Laurel Spacing

Pink Charm Mountain Laurel has a well-branched, rounded growth habit that will stand 8 to 10 feet tall and wide. Space shrubs 6 feet apart when creating a hedge or farther apart for a natural mass 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.
