Plant Type: Perennials

This Lungwort hybrid is more valued for its attractive foliage than its flowers. Features basal clumps of large silvery-gray leaves (to 6" long) with a very narrow green edging. Drooping clusters of bluish-pink, funnel-shaped flowers bloom on short stalks just above the foliage in spring. Foliage mound typically grows to 10" tall and can spread over time to as much as 2' wide.

 


Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Prefers cool, organically rich, humusy soils that are kept consistently moist. Soils must not be allowed to dry out. Intolerant of wet, poorly drained soils however. Spreads very slowly by creeping roots, but is not invasive. Divide plants in fall if they become overcrowded.
