What does the word kalmia mean?

Usage examples for kalmia

  1. It is a fact familiar to persons engaged in sheep husbandry in New England- and I have seen it confirmed by personal observation- that sheep bred where the common laurel, as it is called, Kalmia angustifolia, abounds, almost always avoid browsing upon the leaves of that plant, while those brought from districts where laurel is unknown, and turned into pastures where it grows, very often feed upon it and are poisoned by it. – The Earth as Modified by Human Action by George P. Marsh
