Pulmonaria angustifolia 'Azurea'

13th March 2013

I remember the first time I met the genus Pulmonaria, a tiny blue flower in February sheltering under the north wall of an old brick house. I remember being perplexed and it took a few days to identify it.
This is the plant I saw, and it gives me a small chilly thrill every time I see it in a garden. This little shoot turned up at a plant sale and the time had come to grow it myself. There are better, bluer, more modern, mildew resistant forms about. They are all wonderful (though there are perhaps a few more than absolutely necessary) but they will never quite replace this.
