Buds of Mountain Laurel

Kalmia latifolia

Before they bloom, mountain laurel buds manifest. Mountain laurel transforms the New Jersey Pinelands as it blooms. The forest becomes a vast floral show of cabbage sized clusters of peppermint striped flowers.
Yet, before the show,these buds provide more subtle color, and have a beauty all their own.
