Pulmonaria

Pulmonarias (commonly known as Lungworts) are a great group of plants, they are low growing and provide masses of flowers in Spring, with blue, red, purple, pink and white forms available. Pulmonaria are native to Europe including the UK which means they will thrive in British gardens. They associate well with Hellebores, snowdrops, Cyclamen, Tiarella and Erythronium. Many have fabulous foliage, well marked and even fully silvered leaves, providing a lovely contrast to Summer flowering plants such as hardy Geraniums. They really have two seasons of interest, flowers and foliage over a long period in Spring and then fine clumps of fresh foliage in Autumn which form an attractive ground cover before flowering in the Spring. Tidy up plants in Winter to make room for a flush of new strong growth.

{Cultivation}
Galium will spread quite vigorously, but it is a plant that will survive the toughest of dry shady conditions.
