Kalmias moving into the landscape

ready to plant
Mountain laurels are tricky -- they need perfect drainage and exactly the right site to be "at home" in a new spot. We've lost plenty over the years, when they weren't in the right spot!

Old mountain laurels persist for decades, of course, and are perfectly sturdy in their (natural) well-drained habitats.

Several found new homes in our mountain landscape last weekend, thanks to my gardening companion.  Hopefully, on the lower slope, they'll thrive!  It's well-drained, for sure.
