Pulmonaria ‘Shrimps on the Barbie’


Lungwort

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.449.720


Despite their unfortunate common name, Lungworts are among the most dependable and showy spring-blooming perennials, and many types have attractive foliage throughout the season. This large, spreading selection features masses of deep shrimp pink flower clusters held above dark green leaves with white spots. Mildew resistant. Plants should be cut back hard immediately after blooming, to rejuvenate the leaves, which will then remain attractive all season. Evergreen in mild winter regions. Clumps may be easily divided in early fall.
