Description :

A little gem for a shady border.

Pulmonaria rubra 'David Ward' is a semi-evergreen perennial which forms an attractive clump of ashy green leaves with clear, cream-white margins, all of which is topped by spring bouquets of coral red flowers.

This English lungwort, Pulmonaria 'David Ward', is from Beth Chatto's garden and a little gem to place in a well-kempt, shady border or rockery together with other late winter-flowering varieties: Galanthus, Cyclamen coum, Helleborus.

Grow in partial shade in well-drained, humus-rich, moist to damp garden soil, which is acid to alkaline.

An overly warm and/or sunny exposure can burn the outside edges of its delicate leaves.

Height: 20 to -30 cm.

Maintenance: prune the clumps after flowering in May-June to stimulate new foliage growth and apply a leaf compost mulch in autumn.
