When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

Pulmonaria officinalis rubra

Yes the rubra is always much earlier than the blue spotty one - at least it is in my garden @rachelbrooks

Just checked the RHS A-Z 😉😂😂 & P. Rubra “flowers from late winter”... as do most of the others 🙄😂😂 @rachelbrooks

I wonder if this is P. rubra ‘Redstart’: “has coral-red flowers, and is often the first pulmonaria to flower, in midwinter”. Sounds about right...

Hmmm...thank you. Had a look...nuffink! Mind you it’d help if I could remember exactly where I planted them! 🙈

Now it makes me even more anxious for spring so we can see the blooms on the lungwort we planted last year. It looks so pretty!

I know! It was a lovely surprise Claudia. Having said that, the rubra always flowers much earlier than the P. Officinalis @clipperty

I forget how nice they are in the spring, as they do look a bit tatty later in the year @gjones
