PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Pulmonaria rubra 'Redstart'
Coral Lungwort
Type/Hardiness Herbaceous, Perennial, Hardy
Flowering period Early Spring
Height 12in/30cm
Light preference Shade, part-shade
Soil preference Moist
Sowing time/depth ,
This unusual pulmonaria is low-growing and mat-forming, making it a good choice for ground cover in moist, shady areas - lighting them up just when a little colour is so welcome! The leaves are mid-green and unspotted, above which masses of coral-red flowers appear on short, hairy stems in early spring.

NOTE: Plants, when offered, may, depending on season, be trimmed right back and/or delivered bare-rooted, but will soon regenerate.

Sowing and/or growing instructions
Very easy to grow as long as given adequate moisture and some shade. Cut back stems after they have finished flowering to encourage fresh mounds of foliage. The plant spreads, but is quite shallow-rooted, so not at all difficult to control.
