Botanical: Lungwort, Bethlehem sage, Cowslip
Common: Lungwort, Bethlehem sage, Cowslip
General Characteristics: This species of lungwort is superb for brightening up shady borders or woodland gardens. It makes a good trouble-free, evergreen groundcover, spreading slowly and requiring little care. 'Dora Bielefeld' has silver-spotted, green leaves and from late winter to late spring the pink, funnel-shaped flowers are borne over a long period.
Cold-hardy to minus forty to minus thirty degrees, & not much liked by deer, this is a hardy naturalizer that makes a good groundcover plant or specimen perennial. The leaves can clump up to a foot of height, & spread twenty inches.
