PULMONARIA officinalis 'SISSINGHURST WHITE' - Jerusalem Cowslip - Short - Plant 16" apart. Z 3-8. Clean white flower bells. Extra large silver leaf spots on mounding foliage.
General Information:
Fabulous shade plant with semievergreen foliage which remains attractive. Mounding habit will spread out to make a beautiful foliage display without being aggressive. Works well under deciduous trees and along woodland pathways. Excellent with bulbs or under trees. New introductions are constantly expanding the choices in leaf coloring.
