Lungwort, a perennial, blooms in early spring with brilliant blue, pink, or white flowers. The variety that I have has a combination of blue and pink flowers. Depending on the variety, the rough basal leaves can be spotted or plain.
Once the flowers are spent, the leaves continue to stand in a roundish mound through the Summer, Fall and into the Winter.
Lungwort makes a very nice addition to a border or edging. It is easy to grow, deer resistant, drought tolerant and has a rather exotic looking leaf making it quite attractive.
Lungwort grows well in Zones 2-8 from what I have read. It grows to the height of 6-12 inches depending on the variety and can be planted in Sun, Partial Sun or Shade. A nice hardy plant to consider for landscaping.
"Flowers of blue and pink,
Happy little flowers, I think..."
A bonus bit of information...
The flowers can be pressed to use on cards, pictures or bookmarks like I have done here!
