Description

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.)
