Pulmonaria ‘Shrimps on the Barbie’ is a NEW introduction which has unusually large clusters of shrimp pink flowers on a mound of silver spotted, dark green leaves.  One of the features of this lungwort is the early flowering season.  It is a good colour break from the normal pinky-blue hybrids.  Suitable for the front of a shady border or as ground cover in the dappled shade of deciduous trees and shrubs, with Hellebores, Hosta, Epimedium, Brunnera and Ferns, in moist but well-drained, humus-rich soil.  Mildew resistant. Pollinator plant. Hardiness rating H6. Pot size 1 litre.

Care & Maintenance

Cut back after flowering and mulch with leaf mould or compost to promote fresh new growth which will remain evergreen through to the following spring.  Propagate by division in spring or autumn.
