Pulmonaria. An early blooming curiosity for the shady garden. These sweet, little flowers open cherry pink and develop to violet through blue. The result will be different coloured flowers wihtin each cluster. A very rewarding but sometimes overlooked plant. Height 8-12". 2-3 eye root.

Planting Perennial Roots:
Soak bare-root perennials in water for a few hours before planting. Add organic matter to the area and provide good drainage unless the plant variety enjoys wet roots. Unless otherwise specified, bare-root perennials are usually planted with the crown (where the shoots meet the roots) an inch below the soil surface. Firm soil gently to eliminate air pockets and water in well. Mark the area clearly since it may be awhile before the plant shows itself.
Plant with the crown an inch below soil surface, 12-18" apart. Prefers compost rich well-drained soil.
Pulmonaria may become dormant in extended dry spells. Perform early spring cleanup before flowering begins. Can be divided every 4 - 6 years right after flowering or in early autumn. Can shear tired foliage in midsummer for a flush of new growth.
