Pulmonaria ‘Milky Way’


This plant is no longer for sale directly from TERRA NOVA® Nurseries. However, it may still be available through one of our Licensees or Retail Sources.


This plant offers the stellar combination of lance-shaped, heavily spotted leaves and pink-wine blooms that fade to blue. Strong spotted leaves are of mildew resistant P. 'Margery Fish' heritage. Tony Avent of Plant Delights Nursery feels it's the best form for the south.
