Quick Overview:

Brilliantly contrasting foliage and one of the best track records of all of our Pulmonaria in the hot summers of the Midwest and South. Large pink flowers fade to blue over mildew-resistant foliage. Nice mounding habit. The wavy, spear shaped leaves are dark green, infused with melting silver.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Prefers cool, organically rich, humusy soils that are kept consistently moist. Soils must not be allowed to dry out. Plants may go into dormancy in the heat of summer if soils become too dry. Foliage may depreciate considerably in hot summer weather and may scorch if grown in too much sun. Although plants tolerate light morning sun, they need afternoon shade. Remove flower stems immediately after bloom. Plants spread slowly by creeping roots. Divide plants in fall if they become too crowded
