Despite being related to rhododendrons, kalmias require rather different conditions and flower best when grown in full sun. They require acid soil and make good companions for heathers. The crimped buds and round flowers are exquisite. To produce the best displays, ensure that the soil is always moist. The Royal Horticultural Society have given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
