Pulmonaria/Lungwort

You know spring is here when the Lungwort is blooming!!!!
I love this plant!!! It is a faithful friend, always showing up in early spring and blooming it's little heart out!!! As it grows, it is easily dividable. So I now have this little charmer in many places through out the garden!!

There are many different types of this plant, but I have yet to find them in the local nurseries!!! Someday I will, and they will be added to my collection.
This is a great plant for beginners because it is so easy to take care of. The slugs and snails don't seem interested in eating it down to the ground, or even for a little snack, which is nice. They seem to eat everything else in my garden!!!

Have a great day everyone and enjoy!!! Take care!! Martha
