Today in the garden: mountain laurel

mountain laurel 1

The mountain laurel are in full bloom now!  These are gorgeous plants, actually related to blueberries, and like blueberries, they are acid-loving and need their soil ph just right or their leaves start to turn yellow.  I grow them on the east side of the house so that they get morning sun and afternoon shade, because they’ll burn with too much hot sun.
