Excellent lungbane. Have 12 Pulmonaria cultivars or selections. Find this is relatively vigorous, but is still clump forming and well behaved. Is certainly among the most powdery mildew resistant of my lungbanes.
See also CABI abstract: Screening for powdery mildew resistance in Pulmonaria - Only five of 25 tested diverse Pulmonaria species and cultivars exhibited high levels of resistance: cevennensis was one of them.
