Pulmonaria (Lungwort) makes a showy ground cover or edge for shaded areas. It is grown for its early flowers, which attract bees, and unusual foliage. It features basal clumps of large, 12” medium green leaves with spots and drooping clusters of funnel-shaped flowers in spring. Mass plantings are eye catching and individual plants will, over a few years, grow into large clumps. It is invaluable for a woodland or wildlife garden. It performs well beneath deciduous trees and shrubs, and mixed in with hosta, daylily, peony, fern, astilbe, and spring bulbs. It is tough and adaptable and will take some drought once established. The foliage usually remains attractive after bloom and throughout the summer as long as it receives sufficient moisture. Lungwort is easily grown in well-drained, moist, organic-rich soils in part to full shade. It spreads slowly by creeping roots, and has no serious insect or disease problems. Its leaves can depreciate considerably in extremely hot weather or too much sun. It can be divided in the fall.

To plant bare root perennials, dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2” below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly.

Supplied as #1 sized bare root. Tags are included with bare root perennials from DeGroot.
