  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: March to May
  • Flower colour: blue-violet
  • Other features: dark green, unspotted leaves
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Delightful, large blue-violet flowers borne in spring above unspotted, dark green foliage. An excellent groundcover plant for a shady spot. Choose a place where the soil retains moisture over the summer and where the bright flowers can be fully appreciated.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide large clumps every three to five years after flowering or in autumn. Cut back plants affected by mildew to the ground, water and feed - the plant will regenerate and produce new leaves later in the year.

    Such a great shade loving perennial that provides some much needed colour in early March, its also such a valuable early source of nectar for bees.

      Comments about Pulmonaria 'Blue Ensign':

      My review is based on identical plants that have been established for several years and not the ones bought in early summer 2016 which are yet to flower. The older plants give many weeks of bright blue flowers. The new plants have grown well in shade and I expect them to start flowering in spring 2017.

        A pretty plant, have in 3 different colours. Some in pots & some in rockery. They did very well with all the rain, so assuming will be hardy. Stay green too, even now the leaves are green (December).

        How to control weeds

        ‘One year's seed is seven year's weed’, or so the saying goes, so the most important thing an organic gardener (and non-organic gardener for that matter) can do is prevent weeds from flowering and setting seed. A horrifying example of this is chickweed,

        Pulmonarias - top of the nectar table

        One plant every gardener should grow is the pulmonaria, or lungwort. It oozes nectar from its flowers, which are held on foot-high stems. Find a place in dappled shade in reasonable soil close to deciduous trees and shrubs, because pulmonarias are basical

        Low maintenance plants for a shady garden

        We all want a lovely garden but sometimes we are too busy with work and family, or we simply don’t have the inclination to garden incessantly, so the trick is to choose low maintenance plants such as easy shrubs and then to underplant them with ground cov
