Mine are planted in a woodlands border with some hostas, ferns, virginia bluebell, etc. We don't have many deer in my neighborhood, but they appear to be slug resistant. My hostas were devistated by a sudden slug infestation last year, but the pulmonaria were not touched. Their rough texture may be the reason

This is an easy to grow, low maintenance plant that just loves the same environment as hostas. Since the deer continue to eat my hostas, I've started to replace them with lungwort which are just about at the bottom of their 'preferred eating list'.
