Pulmonaria 'Blue Ensign' (Large Plant)

Lungwort

Hardy Perennial

The beautiful clear blue flowers of this striking Lungwort appear in large clusters from March to May. Unlike many cultivars, the green foliage of Pulmonaria 'Blue Ensign' is broader, unspotted and more refined, creating low spreading clumps that make attractive ground cover. This superb RHS AGM variety is ideal for bringing spring colour to woodland areas and shaded borders, where it will attract pollinating insects to its nectar rich blooms. Height: 35cm (14"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Culinary note: The leaves can be eaten raw or cooked and added to salads, or used as a potherb. The plant is an ingredient of the drink Vermouth. For more details about edible flowers click here.
