Pulmonaria officinalis

Pulmonaria officinalis
Common name lungwort
Family boraginaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers blue and pink (early spring)
Size 12"
Light part shade
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil
From seed self-seeds in our garden; seed short-lived

We love the pink and blue flowers all on the same plant - it brightens up our shade garden in early spring, long before anything else gets into gear in that coolest part of our garden. The white-speckled foliage is nice too, although it can get a little ratty-looking by the end of summer.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
