Lungwort ssp. Cevennensis
Out of stock
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 form is found growing wild in France, and features large clusters of deep violet-blue flowers on the ends of arching stems. Foliage is very long and narrow, dark green with silver spots. Plants should be cut back hard immediately after blooming, to rejuvenate the leaves, which will then remain attractive all season. Clumps may be easily divided in early fall. Tolerates heat and humidity.
