Dependable and rewarding, 'Nipmuck' has everything you want in a Mountain Laurel from deep, dark, shiny foliage, to outstanding dense, round form, to dazzling bloom color. The anticipation will take your breath away as 'Nipmuck' sets loads of buds that color deep red in late May and burst into color soon after. Flowers open light pink to almost white with a pink petal back that gives this plant's ample bloom a two-tone look that's subtle, yet beautiful. Like all Kalmia, 'Nipmuck' thrives in partial to full shade and makes a superb border planting.
