Pulmonaria is also known as lungwort, from the 15th century practice of the shape of plant parts dictating what they should be used for. Although that may be interesting, the plant is quite an asset for the shade garden. Pulmonaria blooms early, flowers come pink, blue and purple on a plant, and the foliage is a nice texture change from hosta. 'Dark Vader' has a strong habit and good mildew resistance. Cut plant back after flowering for a fresh flush of foliage to enjoy the rest of the season. Pollinator magnet.
