  • Pink buds open into blue flowers, providing a two-tone effect
  • Interesting spotted foliage is a nice accent amongst other shade plants
  • Good mildew resistance

The simultaneous appearance of buds and blossoms creates a captivating two-tone impression. In contrast to "Spot On," the flower buds are pink rather than salmon, the flowers open a paler blue, and the leaves are narrower and dark rather than light green.

Homeowner Growing Tips: Grow in shade or morning sun with afternoon shade. Lungworts prefer evenly moist soil; amend with compost before planting. Avoid letting these dry out in summer, or foliage may decline, and powdery mildew may appear. Deadhead after blooming; old leaves may be removed as new ones begin to appear. Divide after flowering or in autumn, as needed.
