This superb landscape Pulmonaria has the best of both worlds. long, silver, spear-shaped 26″ leaves are highly mildew resistant and provide the perfect backdrop for an extended floral show. Midnight blue flowers are wider than the typical longifolia species. The PPA gave this subspecies from the Cevennes (a region in France) the highest mildew resistance rating in their trials. Very vigorous.
