Product Details

Product Details

The attractive raspberry-pink blooms appear early, but the brilliant silver-spotted leaves and upright habit are what make this an exceptional Lungwort. A cross between P. longifolia 'Bertram Anderson' and P. rubra 'Barfield Pink.' PP 12,138

These shade-loving natives of Europe and Asia are among the easiest and most desirable perennials for low light. They spread slowly from the initial clump to form an attractive ground cover. Choose a spot for them that stays moist (not wet) and has soil rich in organic matter. Cutting off old leaves right after bloom will stimulate a fresh crop that will look good for the rest of the season. They make an exquisite underplanting for Ferns, Hostas, and spring-flowering bulbs such as Daffodils. They're also useful as a soft but bright edging for a shady border. Not suited to conditions in the desert Southwest.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it.

Update: This is an excellent plant

A viewer from Northern New York

Updating my review from years ago. White Flower Farm sent me a replacement raspberry pulmonaria for the one that didn't make it in the first spring following fall planting. Over the last several years this plant has been a beautiful early bloomer as well as prolific. It's in several places in our almost 1 acre yard now. It has thrived in the sun and in the shade. We've transplanted the offspring in many new spots, and wherever it is it spreads. We're happy that it does this because we need the ground cover. Once I saw the first hummingbird of spring feeding at this plant's flowers.

VERY hardy little plant in tough garden spots

A viewer from Eastern Shore, VA

This is a colorful & robust pulmonaria that has survived in the same full- shade bed where several other pulmonaria varieties have succumbed to mildew, slugs, and I know-not-what-else. The flowers are tiny but vibrant. It has survived occasional short periods of drought, and is bothered by neither the humid heat in southern Virginia summers nor last winter's brutal (for us) spell of 15 degree weather. I have ordered several more, as this such a resounding success. Deadheading seems to prolong bloom period.

LONG blooming and adorable!

Garden Bee from Lexington, KY

Adorable clumps with remarkable foliage! The flower colors are even bolder and more striking than pictured! Best of all, they started blooming in the second week of February -- a nice welcome to spring -- and here it is a week into May and they are still blooming profusely! Perfect little plant!

awesome spring plant

dargardaylilies from Prescott, MI

i'm in northern MI z4 iffy z3 micro. have had for 4 years. mine blooms for along time, but has adequate moisture in spring gets dry in summer but water when i can. has very little leaf loss over winter. nice leaves all season. have lots of deer and don't bother. am moving to NC mountains and want to get as many of different color flowers to plant up a mountain side that has very little sun. one of my favorite spring blooming flowers. a must have for shade with foam flower, jack frost brunnera and woodland phlox and smaller hostas later.

Amazing Shade Plant!

WhiteRabbitRage from Seattle, WA

Got these out of desperation for something to grow in dense shade. But they have become beautiful! Huge, neat clumps, some leaves over a foot long.Some of my clumps are over 2' high. They look so cheerful and lush. The shade is so dense even Hosta won't grow, but these guys look super.

Latin Name Pronunciation: pul-mo-nair'ee-uh  

Plant Pulmonaria in partial shade or shade and average to damp soil. Plants may disappear in a summer drought, then reemerge when the weather cools and rain returns.

In the South, plants may "mug off" in summer but generally reappear and bloom the following spring. Despite the plants' prickly leaves, slugs find Lungworts appetizing; set out shallow bowls of beer to keep the population in check, or put down diatomaceous earth (available at many garden centers).
