Pulmonaria are fabulous shade plants with semi-evergreen foliage which remains attractive as long as they are provided with adequate moisture throughout the summer. Works well under deciduous trees and along woodland pathways. Excellent with bulbs.

Pulmonaria Plant Care:

Prefers compost rich well drained soil. Pulmonaria may become dormant in extended dry spells. Early spring cleanup before flowering begins. Can be divided every 4 - 6 years right after flowering in late summer or early autumn. Can shear tired foliage in midsummer for a flush of new growth.
