Buy Pulmonaria 'Silver Bouquet' (PBR) lungwort Silver Bouquet: Lots of early colour for partial shade

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

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

    This attractive, early-flowering perennial will help liven up the woodland floor in spring. It forms a good-sized clump of slender, pointed leaves, which are generously daubed in silver. The flaring bell-shaped flowers form in clusters, and are held above the foliage on upright stems, opening pink, but turning blue as they age. This, coupled with the silvery foliage, which may be retained during milder winters and shows some resistance to powdery mildew, creates a very colourful effect.

  • 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.

Beautiful, healthy plant


Small on arrival but soon thrive - even in very chalky soil like mine. Bees love the beautiful pink/purple flowers. Mine are in their 2nd year and around 1ft tall, covering around 2ft sq. I also now have a bonus baby plant! Easy to maintain. My tips: Can wilt slightly in particularly hot weather but soon recovers. I wouldn't plant in full sun. It sulks (big time!) if you need to move it so plan well initially.

Not sure I would buy this product again.


The problem is that it did not thrive. I have tried it in three different locations. Its leaves regularly get eaten (unlike "Opal" pulmonaria, which is much healthier). I do not know if it will come up next year. Disappointing.




Healthy plant


Plant was healthy & arrived in good condition




Colourful addition to dark corner


I liked the mix with the fern as I needed to fill some space in a newly cleared garden. These filled in quickly.

Rosette plants in the autumn garden
