Noted for its very long blooming season (up to 10 weeks), Pulmonaria 'Victorian Brooch' (Lungwort) is a compact, clump-forming, semi-evergreen perennial with profuse clusters of outfacing magenta coral flowers in spring. Equally eye-catching is the foliage of brightly silver-spotted, rounded-oval, green leaves, which remains attractive throughout the entire growing season if cut back after blooming. Resistant to powdery mildew, this pretty Lungwort is evergreen in mild winter areas and is an excellent choice for shady gardens.

  • A part shade or full shade lover, it thrives in organically rich, moist and well-drained soils. Dry soils to be avoided! A cool site in partial shade or shade is preferred.
  • A remarkably low-maintenance plant, this excellent performer may be massed as a ground cover. Perfect for shaded beds and borders, banks and slopes, rock gardens or as an edging plant for shady paths.
  • Propagate by division after flowering or in fall
  • Remove flower stems immediately after bloom.
