What Is This Spikey Pink Pinecone Looking Flower

kalmia-latifoliaAsk the Expert: can you identify this plant please. As you can see by the photograph, before the flower opens it looks rather spikey like a pink pinecone but opens into a simple type of bell flower. Can it be grown in Zone 3? Kate

Flower Shop Network‘s Plant Expert Reply:

This flower identification was a hard one for me. So, I contacted Rick Pudwell at the Memphis Botanical Garden. Luckily for me, he was able to identify it. Here is his identification:

It appears to be Mountain Laurel, Kalmia latifolia. I t is a native shrub in the North Eastern U.S. through the Smoky Mountains. It is difficult to grow unless you live in an area with similar conditions.

Mountain Laurel’s cupped-shaped flowers bloom from late spring to mid-summer. It has pink to white flowers with crimson to dark pink buds. This dense bushy shrub is sometimes called Calico bush. They like to grow in moist, humus-rich soil. in partial shade or moist sunny areas.

Blanket Flower Is Always Covered With Blooms



Ask the Expert: Flower identification
This perennial blooms in June.  Any ideas on identification?  Thanks!

Plant Expert Reply:

This is an awesome perennial called Gaillardia (Indian Blanket Flower) and will bloom all summer long.  This is one of the few perennials that will give me color all summer.  The only down side to this perennial is that it will come up everywhere if you let it.
