    Delicate pure-white funnel-shaped flowers in early spring and white-spotted bright-green leaves. This dainty pulmonaria is perfect for shady areas. One of the first to flower it looks lovely alongside dwarf narcissus. Best in a soil that remains moist over summer since mildew can take hold if the roots dry out.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide large clumps every three to five years after flowering or in autumn. Cut back plants affected by mildew to the ground water and feed - the plant will regenerate and produce new leaves later in the year.
