Hi all - this shrub has been in the garden since we moved here over 20 years ago. It has beautiful, sweetie like flowers that open later on. I'd like to trim it but am worried I will damage it. It's too lovely to loose! The garden seat will give an idea of scale. The shrub is approx 5 feet high and the flowers are about 3/4 inch before they open fully.
Many thanks - Colin

The beautiful Kalmia latifolia or Mountain laurel, it loves acidic soil, you can thin it out, it is a very brittle shrub.
