Buy Pulmonaria rubra lungwort: A long-flowering, ground-covering perennial

This perennial is semi-evergreen so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.


  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: February to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Providing valuable ground cover towards the front of a partially shaded bed or woodland garden, the light green foliage and deep coral coloured flowers that appear from late winter make this a very attractive semi-evergreen perennial.

  • 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.
