Mountain Laurels In Our Backyard

I took this picture couple of years ago when the mountain laurels in our backyard were in full bloom. This really is a beautiful flower and I wish I could enjoy it every year but this plant blooms only every other year. A friend of mine wants to transplant some of them but it is hard to propagate mountain laurel by transplanting them from the wild. Digging up wild plants usually causes sufficient root damage.


  1. Wow- I didn't know they could grow so far north. Beautiful.

  2. Very beautiful. We are just starting to see the signs of spring here.
    We did the same with beach roses at one time. I believe only one of them took.
    Thanks for the visit to Grampy's Place
