One of the earliest plants to bloom, you can be picking Lungwort’s urn-shaped flowers in February while the rest of the garden still slumbers. Easy-to-grow Pulmonarias prefer the lacy light of a woodland setting and cool moist soil. They are excellent noninvasive ground covers.
Bred by Pulmonaria aficionado Janet Egger and introduced by Terra Nova Nursery in 2009, this mounding silver-leafed cultivar inherits a welcome heat and mildew-resistant bent from its Pulmonaria longifolia ssp. cevennensis heritage. Showcasing green edges and occasional mottling, long, lustrous, lance-shaped leaves make a posh glittering statement even before the flared bell-like pink blooms take on bright blue-violet shades. ‘Silver Bouquet’s stalwart clump can edge a shady border where it shrugs off slugs and deer plus mingles with Athyrium ‘Ghost’, Anemone leveillei and some spring bulbs.
