Blossoms in Millcreek

There are blooming mountain laurel blossoms to enjoy along the roads in Millcreek Township near the boat launch. Mountain laurel was designated as Pennsylvania's official state flower in 1933. Mountain laurel is also called spoonwood as native Americans used to make spoons from the wood. The mountain laurel is one of the most beautiful of native American shrubs and the fragrant star-shaped white and pink flowers have attracted travelers since early colonial days.
