Plant details

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. This variety has almost silver leaves which show the blooms off beautifully. The funnel-shaped flowers open red, gradually fading to deep violet and it has been given an Award of Garden Merit (AGM), which is for plants of outstanding excellence.
