Plant Information

Grown as much for their attractive leaves as their flowers, lungworts look best grown in masses as a shady ground cover or combined with hostas, hellebores and ferns in a shady garden. The foliage remains attractive all season as long as the soil isn't allowed to dry out. You can rejuvenate a ragged patch by cutting the stems back by half after flowers fade. The genus name Pulmonaria and common name lungwort refer to the spotted foliage, considered to resemble a diseased lung. (It was once believed that if a plant resembled a particular body part, it had the ability to cure ailments associated with it; pulmonaria was used to treat respiratory problems.)

    Comments about American Meadows Lungwort Raspberry Splash:

    This is a different plant for shady spots. I did not get a lot of flowers this year, but I am sure I will in years to come. The foliage is just as nice to look at and unusual, which makes it a great addition to a shady area of the garden. It was just a very small plant when it came, but it grew to a nice size plant already this year. It's worth the splurge.

      Comments about American Meadows Lungwort Raspberry Splash:

      I have purchased pulmonaria in the past and as it thrives in my garden I wanted more plants. The species matches mine exactly so I now have a more intense presence of lungwort; lovely in the spring and all summer long.

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
