Pulmonaria Twinkle Toes, Lungwort
A charming shade perennial, Twinkle Toes Lungwort, Pulmonaria, will make you want to frolic with joy with its periwinkle-blue spring flowers and unique foliage. Starting in mid-spring dainty blue flowers cover a low, mound of fascinating foliage. After the flowers fade, you can enjoy its dark green leaves that are delightfully sprinkled with silver.
Pulmonaria is an underused perennial that makes a wonderful shade garden or woodland addition. It is especially attractive when planted among hostas, ferns, and bleeding hearts. Many consider its flowers among the most brilliantly colored blossoms of all perennials. Easy to grow and even grows in dry shade.
Plant in shade to full shade in well-drained soil. Add organic matter when planting. Although tolerant of drought, plants will do best with consistent moisture. Dividing plants every three to five years will keep plants vigorous. It is best to divide plants immediately after flowering or in early fall.
Offered in-house and online. Subject to availability.
