Plant details

Lungworts are valuable plants not only for their early flowers, but for their mottled foliage. Plants make good trouble-free ground cover for moist shade; they spread slowly and need little care. This species is often one of the first lungworts to flower, with deep red blooms appearing in mid- to late winter.
