Lovely, lovely, lovely. I planted Majeste last summer. The silver foliage is stunning. The flowers that are just now popping out are pastel pink and blue, and the overall effect is very nice. The leaves are not solid silver now, however...I am wondering if they will change back after bloom time. It is still very pretty, so I don't think I'd care, but it's just rather curious. Has anyone else experienced this?

This is a French introduction from La Ferme Fluerie Nursery. It is worthy of growing in a shady moist garden for its solid colored silver leaves and blue/pink flowers in the Spring.

This must be one of the lovliest lungwort for foliage ('Excaliber' is also excellent). I've had this one for three years and have been very pleased by the foliage all season. The typical lungwort flowers contrast nicely against the foliage. Highly recommended.
