Lungwort Growing and Maintenance Tips
Grows best in an average to moist, well-drained soil, in partial to full shade and is intolerant of prolonged periods of drought. Flowers prolifically, which sometimes prevents the foliage from fully maturing. Although the blooms are attractive, it is recommended pruning the clump back before they finish flowering, to encourage new foliage for the rest of the season.
