Quick Overview:

From Didier Willery of France comes this cross of Pulmonaria ‘Majeste’ x Pulmonaria longifolia var. cevennensis that makes a superb clump of narrow, pure silver foliage unlike any pulmonaria I’d ever grown. In spring, the clumps are topped with cobalt blue flowers. After a brutally hot summer with 70+ days over 90 degrees F, the clumps still looked fabulous…thanks to the Pulmonaria longifolia parentage.

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
