Pulmonaria rubra

(Lungwort) Back to Perennials
Pulmonaria rubra

Pulmonaria rubra is one of the earliest flowering Pulmonarias, providing vital colour and interest to your garden from late winter through to early spring. Light green leaves and short stems bear clusters of coral-red flowers. An excellent addition to any woodland or wildlife garden, Pulmonaria rubra thrives in shady spots and makes a good ground cover plant for underneath trees and shrubs.

The name Pulmonaria is derived from Latin ‘pulmo’, meaning ‘lung’. As well as lungwort, other colloquial names include ‘soldiers and sailors’, ‘spotted dog’ and ‘Jerusalem cowslip’. They combine well with Hellebores, Tiarella, Snowdrops and especially Geraniums.
