Pulmonaria longifolia

Narrow-leaved lungwort

An underused semi-evergreen plant that loves heavy clay soils in partial shade. 

It slowly forms quite large mats and is useful for difficult, dark areas. It is extremely robust and trouble free. 

The large dark green oval leaves are hairy on both sides so slugs tend to leave them alone. The leaves are mottled and dotted with silvery green patches making this an outstanding foliage plant. The small, pink buds open to fuchsia like flowers that are a brilliant gentian blue. 

A very pleasing, easy plant that will delight for many years.
