Pulmonaria ‘Silver Bouquet’

Our first new Pulmonaria introduction in years – why? It has it all – cevennensis breeding for mildew resistance, heat and humidity tolerance with large coral to pink to violet flowers that “look at you.” Features an excellent shelf life with a very short delay from flower to foliage form. Spectacular silver foliage for year round sales makes this a winner!

Comments

Grows well in containers like P. longifolia ssp. cevennensis. 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.
