Description

St. Ann's Lungwort features delicate clusters of blue bell-shaped flowers with violet overtones at the ends of the stems from mid to late spring, which emerge from distinctive purple flower buds. Its attractive tomentose narrow leaves remain green in color throughout the season.

Landscape Attributes

St. Ann's Lungwort is an herbaceous perennial with a mounded form. Its medium texture blends into the garden, but can always be balanced by a couple of finer or coarser plants for an effective composition.

This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and should be cut back in late fall in preparation for winter. It is a good choice for attracting hummingbirds to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

St. Ann's Lungwort is recommended for the following landscape applications;

Mass Planting;Rock/Alpine Gardens;General Garden Use;Container Planting

Planting & Growing

St. Ann's Lungwort will grow to be about 8 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 12 inches. When grown in masses or used as a bedding plant, individual plants should be spaced approximately 10 inches apart. Its foliage tends to remain low and dense right to the ground. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 10 years. As an herbaceous perennial, this plant will usually die back to the crown each winter, and will regrow from the base each spring. Be careful not to disturb the crown in late winter when it may not be readily seen!
