Plant details

The clusters of nodding white flowers, which attract bees, stand out well against the mottled green leaves. Plants make good trouble-free ground cover for moist shade; they spread slowly and need little care. This variety is often one of the first lungworts to flower, with white blooms appearing in mid- to late winter.
