Galleries » KALMIA - Calico Bush

Considered by many to be one of the most beautiful, evergreen flowering shrubs. Sought-after for the delightful, bell-like flowers that are carried in dense clusters over spring and early summer.

Native to North America, they require similar conditions to rhododendrons and azaleas - acid soil rich in humus or peat. Cooler, moist climates are most suitable. Dappled shade under deciduous trees is also ideal. Avoid lime, clay soils. Tolerant of frost and snow. 
Frequently propagated by tissue culture.
