Kalmia latifolia 'Olympic Fire'

Kalmia latifolia 'Olympic Fire' (Kalmia latifolia (Calico bush))

I've had this plant a few years and this is the first time it has flowered well. The flowers start light pink (almost white) and turn deep pink as they age. Not an easy plant to grow and gets leaf spot worse than my other mountain laurels but worth the effort.
