Plant Spotlight: Pulmonaria

Garden Spotlight


Pulmonaria (aka: lungwort) is a charming little shade perennial.  One of the earliest to bloom in the spring, it has green leaves with splotches of white/silver (who couldn’t love a botanical specimen laced with silver?!)   Flower color and amount of silver on the leaves (as well as leaf shape) varies with variety, but the flowers generally come in purpley-blue or raspberry pink shades.  I love that you get a two-tone look with the closed bud and the open flower petal color side by side. 

Hardiness zone: 3-8

Bloom Time: Spring

Sun: Full to Part Shade

Size/Habit: Small to medium sized clumps, relatively slow-growing, approx. 10-12” height/spread.

Notes: Beautiful addition to a woodland garden.  Pairs nicely with hosta, bleeding heart, astilbe.
