Originally introduced by Connecticut's Richard Jaynes, this spectacular banded Kalmia will never cease to impress. Fast-growing, dense and upright, 'Carousel' features burgundy stems holding dark glossy foliage that impresses all year. Soft pink flower buds open in late May to immaculate clusters of cup-shaped flowers boasting intricate patterns of cinnamon-purple bands painted on a pure white canvas. It's bloom and form make 'Carousel' exquisite in appearance, but it's functional in the landscape as well with its resistance to leaf spot, easy going personality and sun or shade tolerance. As a woodland native, 'Carousel' would make a perfect grouped border planting in dappled shade or an arresting single plant specimen.
