- Tiny Blooms Change Red To Blue
- Great Groundcover
- Loves Shade
- Speckled, Fuzzy Foliage
The Pulmonaria ‘Mrs. Moon’, Pulmonaria saccharata, also known as Lungwort or Bethlehem Sage, is a great groundcover for any shady area, helping to lighten up parts of the garden. The foliage is fuzzy and dark green, speckled with silver. The blooms appear in May, and delight the eyes as they change from red to pink flowers that often then turn into blue!
‘Mrs. Moon’ needs to be planted in a full shaded area with well-drained soil. It is a wonderful contrast with Hostas, under shrubs and along paths. Great in containers, shade gardens and rock gardens, the speckled leaves and color changing blooms will lend their tiny elegance to any spot you plant them!
‘Mrs. Moon’ is a vigorous grower and resistant to slugs and great for a first time gardener.
