Botanical: Pulmonaria 'Little Star' Longleafed Lungwort
Common: Lungwort, Bethlehem sage, Cowslip
General Characteristics: A hardy plant, it can survive surprising abuse. Pulmonaria are valuable shade to semi shade plants with showy early spring flowers and attractive rosettes of basal leaves. In their native environments the lungworts grow on a wide range of soils from acid to alkaline, dry to wet, sunny to shady, along streams and in mountains.
They flower in March before leaves appear, are still flowering in April when the spotted, lance-shaped leaves are reaching their maximum size, and will have flowers recurring right into June.
