Pulmonaria Opal


USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.449.760

(=‘Ocupol’) Lungworts are among the most dependable and showy spring-blooming perennials for shady locations. This selection features clusters of pale opal-blue bells that age to white, over a lush mound of silver-spotted green leaves. Evergreen in mild winter regions. Cut back hard after flowering is finished, to rejuvenate the foliage. Plants prefer a rich, moist soil without the competition of surface-rooted trees. From Blooms of Bressingham®. USPP#12931: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
