Plant Type: Perennials
Lungworts are shade plants that are often valued more for their attractive foliage than for their spring flowers. 'Trevi Fountain' is a mounding variety that features slender, silver-spotted leaves and large cobalt-blue flowers. Green leaves are spotted with silver. Drooping clusters of funnel-shaped, cobalt blue flowers appear on short stalks just above the foliage in spring.
Growing & Maintenance Tips:
Easily grown in average, medium moisture, 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. Foliage may depreciate considerably in hot summer weather and may scorch if grown in too much sun. Although plants tolerate light morning sun, they need afternoon shade. Remove flower stems immediately after bloom. Plants spread slowly by creeping roots, but are not invasive. Divide plants in fall if they become too crowded. Plant leaves may retain some color in warm winters.
