Pulmonaria ‘Trevi Fountain’

This superb, brightly silver-spotted beauty will give rise to profuse clusters of large cobalt-blue flowers in spring. A stunner! We feel it is our best, true dark-blue and grows into a magnificent landscape specimen. The roots of this plant are in P. longifolia, the best form for the south, according to John Elsley.

Comments

This Pulmonaria can 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.
