Pulmonaria-Lungwort


Pulmonaria-Lungwort

Just opening on this lovely Spring Morning! My Mum used to call these plants Soldiers and Sailors not sure why but think it maybe because of the pink and blue flowers on the one plant, It thrives under in shade and is a great ground cover, the only thing I dont like about it is its hairy leaves which sting!
