Mountain Laurel Growing and Maintenance Tips
Mountain laurel grows best in a well-drained, acidic soil with consistent moisture until it is established. They are moderately drought tolerant. They show their best, flower colour in full sun, however, they will take some shade. Any pruning should be done soon after flowering to ensure bud set. Some winter sun protection is recommended to prevent winter burn.
