' Elf' is a semi-dwarf mountain laurel with compact, dense growth and shiny dark green foliage. Clusters of pale pink buds develop in late spring, gradually enlarging and opening to almost pure white flowers. The smaller foliage and tighter growth give a more uniform look in the garden than many other cultivars of mountain laurel making it a good plant for groupings or for mixing with dwarf rhododendrons and evergreen azaleas
