Pulmonaria ‘Moonshine’

A lovely compact growth habit with shimmering silver-white leaves. The small leaves are rounded with a thin edge of darkest green and mildew resistant. Heat and humidity tolerance make it a good choice for the South. One of the favorites of the entire TERRA NOVA® breeding team! Small, pale, blue-white flowers.

Comments

This variety can also take a lot of sun in the Pacific Northwest. 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.
