Buy Pulmonaria saccharata 'Mrs Moon' lungwort: Blue-lilac flowers green leaves with white spots

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

    This handsome Jerusalem sage produces bluish-lilac flowers from late winter to late spring. Considered one of the best pulmonarias for foliage, the mid-green leaves are marbled and hairy to touch. An excellent groundcover plant for moist, shady spots, it looks great at the front of the border or for edging paths.

  • 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.

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
