  • Position: full or partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: March to April
  • Flower colour: white
  • Other features: white-spotted leaves
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Delicate, pure-white, funnel-shaped flowers in early spring and white-spotted, bright-green leaves. This dainty pulmonaria is perfect for shady areas. One of the first to flower, it looks lovely alongside dwarf narcissus. Best in a soil that remains moist over summer, since mildew can take hold if the roots dry out.

  • 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.

      A:

      Hello there
      Pulmonarias do cross pollinate, so yes, they could do this in your garden. Sorry but I don't know of any Pulmonaria varieties that don't.
      Hope this helps
