Plant Type: Perennials
Coral pink flowers with well developed spotted leaves. Best in moist shade in most humus-rich soils including clay. An early blooming lungwort in full flower starting early March, with its silver-speckled leaves not far behind joining the blooms. The flowers are clear pink & do not age to blue as do other lungworts. When the flowers are finally finished, the speckly leaves retain their ornamental authority most of the rest of the year, dying back in winter.
Growing & Maintenance Tips:
Dora best likes semi-shade to shade, with moist well draining soil, but will tolerate a sunnier aspect. It can also be seen doing pretty well in dryer shade gardens; but it bushes up much more nicely into a big round clump of leaves when there is adequate moisture.
