Pulmonaria 'Sissinghurst White' (Large Plant)

Pulmonaria officinalis, Lungwort

Hardy Perennial

Despite its unattractive common name of Lungwort, Pulmonaria is a very pretty hardy perennial for ground cover in shady corners, or beneath trees and shrubs. The foliage of Pulmonaria 'Sissinghurst White' is felted, and mottled in white, and accompanied by striking white flowers throughout the summer. Bees love the nectar-rich blooms of Pulmonaria, and this variety is such a reliable plant that it has been awarded an RHS Award of Garden Merit. Excellent for cottage gardens and woodland plantings. Height: 30cm (12"). 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.
