Mountain Laurel


When I met him last year, I bought his book, which he signed with a dedication.


I grow azalea, rhodies and blueberries, should have no problem, are they typically under story shrubs?



In your location— you can do it!


I have Ostbo Red and Olympic Fire. I think the one in the photo is Ostbo Red but I’ll have to take a closer look. It has been in the ground 20+ years and has never been fertilized or pruned. It has stayed healthy and bushy.


Nice long-lived specimen.

I tried to transplant Olympic Wedding twice— killed the plant both times. That was when I didn’t know what I was doing.


You can grow the shrubs.


7 ft tall and never had to prune it to keep it bushy. Gets about 1 hr sun. It’s in full bloom now.
