A different Pulmonaria - leaves are more rounded and almost completely silvered when mature. When in flower, foliage flaunts silver speckles. A deep-green edge makes the silvering really pop. Flowers emerge blushed pink but mature to a pale icy blue/white.

Pulmonaria leaves are attractive all season. Mounding habit will spread to make a beautiful foliage display. Pulmonaria tolerate morning sun, but need afternoon shade to avoid leaf scorching.
