Pulmonaria saccharata 'De Vroomen's Pride'
Among the pulmonarias in our shade garden, this one really sticks out. It's more finnicky than the P. officinalis plants growing in the same area, and doesn't self-seed like those commoners do - but the foliage is much more striking, with variable white blotches on a nice mid-green background. The plant tends to poop out in summer, but has been coming back nice and strong each spring for years now. The plant we bought was labeled P. saccharata; on web references, I usually see it referred to as a cultivar without a species name, so perhaps it's a hybrid.
||ordinary garden soil (not too dry)
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
