Lungwort Cevennensis, Pulmonaria longifolia ‘Cevennensis’, is a clump forming lungwort that is valued by gardeners for its attractive foliage.
It features very long and narrow silvery spotted leaves.
In the spring, drooping clusters of funnel-shaped, dark violet-blue flowers appear.
Lungwort Cevennensis is easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in part shade to full shade, but it prefers cool soils that are moist and humusy.
This lungwort is very tolerant of wet, poorly drained soils, so it must have constant moisture and not be allowed to dry out.
Leaves can depreciate considerably in extremely hot weather or too much sun. Keeping the plant moist will maintain an attractive foliage after bloom and throughout the summer.
Lungwort Cevennensis spreads very slowly by creeping roots, and it is best to divide the plants in the fall.
It is deer resistant.
