Kalmia angustifolia Linnaeus Lambkill, although closely related to mountain laurel, is conspic- uously different in its low stature and smaller but more brightly colored flowers. It is a beautiful member of the Heath Family. The shrub grows from six inches to three feet in height, and where it is plentiful, colors the hillsides or swamps with its rich crimson. The plant, as its popular name intimates, is very poisonous to stock, which sometimes eat the young leaves. Its poisonous properties were well known to the Indians who inhabited the Eastern States. This species has a wide range. It is found from Georgia to Michi- gan and northward to Newfoundland and Hudson Bay. The sketch was made from specimens collected near Washing- ton, District of Columbia.
