Mountain Laurel

Mountain Laurel buds, before they burst open in their spring display of beautiful flowers covering many hill and mountainsides in our area. The Mountain laurel shrubs (Kalmia latifolia) are a close relative of rhododendrons and azaleas, all three shrubs belonging to the heath family. They are not related to their namesakes, though, the bay laurel trees.
