Mountain laurel, Kalmia latifolia, is considered by many to be the most beautiful evergreen flowering shrub. Now in its third edition, this definitive book reflects dramatic changes in the number of cultivars and significant strides in propagation. It details all seven Kalmia species and more than 80 recognized cultivated varieties (up from 50 in the previous edition), 35 of which were selected or bred by the author, and includes history, characteristics, cultivating, and landscaping ideas. Kalmia is not an easy plant to domesticate, so gardeners will welcome the complete information to successfully grow laurel from seed, tissue culture, cuttings, and grafting.
