Mountain Laurel Kalmia latifolia

Mountain Laurel is an evergreen shrub or small tree that grows from 7 to nearly 30 feet tall. It is found throughout Virginia often growing in large thickets. Its flowers, with 5 petals that are fused together and saucer-shaped, range from red to pink to white and grow in clusters, blooming and fruiting between March and July. All parts of the plant are toxic to humans. Toxic effects may also occur from ingestion of honey made from its nectar. Symptoms include watery eyes, runny nose, salivation, nausea and vomiting, as well as less common more severe respiratory and other systemic reactions.
