Comments

This plant handles full sun in the Pacific Northwest. Think of this plant as a landscape plant. Plants wilt rapidly if the soil is too dry. Can be root pruned when grow too large for pot. Crown will re-root quickly. Pulmonaria prefer their roots cool.

Grower Notes

8 wk vernalization required for flowering, plant size. Transplant to 1-gal. pots late summer/early fall for full plants in late winter.
