Lungwort

Pulmonaria saccharata 'Mrs Moon'

Medium green leaves speckled with silver sport magenta buds that open to bright blue bell flowers.

Despite their unfortunate common name, Lungworts are among the most dependable and showy spring-blooming perennials, and many types have attractive foliage throughout the season. This selection features light pink buds that open to clusters of bright blue bells, the green leaves are heavily spotted in silver. Plants should be cut back hard immediately after blooming, to rejuvenate the leaves, which will then remain attractive all season. Evergreen in mild winter regions. Clumps may be easily divided in early fall.
