A glitter of gems in my winter garden – The first to flower in the depths of winter, from June onwards, are the offspring of Pulmonaria rubra. This one we cherish as a harbinger of spring, with unfading coral pink and strawberry blooms, over broad, luxuriant sage green leaves edged with a wide white band. Both winter blooms and year round attractive foliage, make it a gem of the shaded garden for me. Thrives under the wide flung arms of my evergreen alder tree. Chosen by that eminently practical, down to earth gardener and nurserywoman Beth Chatto, when her chief propagator David Ward spotted it as a lucky chance in her garden. 30cm. Loves Deep Shade. Frost hardy.
