Mountain laurels are a broadleaved evergreen shrub in the heather family (Ericaceae) and are native to the eastern United States. Our collection is located at the base of Hemlock Hill, easily accessible from the Bussey Street gate. June is peak bloom time, so now is the perfect time to visit us!

Kalmia latifolia is our Tree of the Month for June 2017.
