My Lungwort Grow-A-Long

April 25, 2008

I was gifted some lungwort through Plantcycle last year and put it in a sunny spot along the west-facing side of my house. It didn’t like being transplanted and I thought it had died, however, it made a valiant return near the end of the summer and I was looking forward the blooms this year. Here it is on April 17th emerging from the ground:

Here it is on April 20th, covered in a light dusting of used coffee grinds:

You can already see the pretty spotted foliage of the leaves amongst the few blooms. Here it is three days later on April 23rd:

And here’s how it looked this morning on April 25th, in a pretty little clump:

I’m pretty happy with how this plant has grown in my flower bed.

    That’s what that’s called!!! We have lungwort growing wild near our cottage and I think it’s just so pretty. I love how the plants make different colored flowers. I’ve always wondered what it was called.

    Very pretty. It’s amazing how fast things are growing this time of year, isn’t it! Everything is leafing out, and just going/growing crazy! Unbelievable!
    Maybe you were right about the last frost date, even if you didn’t really mean it!! That would be great.
