Botanical Name:Kalmia latifolia 'Minuet' Common Name:

The glossy, dark green evergreen leaves are smaller than the type plant.

Description: ‘Minuet’ has buds that are light pink but when the flower opens, you will find a broad maroon band inside the individual floret. The plant habit tends to be quite a bit like ‘Elf’ but in my estimation more diminutive.
