Hi

I was in Fowey last summer and came across this beauty. Now (just before Mothers' Day!) I am trying to find it and realise the name plaque I also photographed, is not correct!

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance!

BNicholson, I love this plant. Keep in mind there are some toxicity issues with the plant: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalmia_latifolia
They like Rhodo-like soil and maintenance.
