(Boraginaceae). Lungwort. Genus of about 14 species of spring-flowering, clump forming deciduous or evergreen perennials. They are found in Europe and Asia on acid to alkaline soils in a wide range of habitats including mountainous areas, moist sub alpine woodland and streamsides. They are grown for attractive foliage and early flowers which are drooping clusters, funnel-shaped. These are often among the first perennial blooms in late winter or spring and very attractive to bees. The small overwintering rosettes of leaves are ovate, hairy or simple and often attractively spotted white or silver. After flowering, new 'summer' leaves develop showing the markings at their best. Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in part shade to full shade. Prefer cool soils.
Good for groundcover for shady site, woodland or among shrubs, wild garden
