March’s plant of the month is Pulmonaria ‘Opal’ bringing a welcome entry into spring.
There is just something really appealing about the green leaves with silver blotched all over them and then the flowers themselves are so dainty. This is a versatile, neat, low-maintenance plant that is happy to grow in shady places and will not spread like wildfire.
Pulmonarias are also useful early sources of nectar for insects such as bees who have just emerged from hibernation and are looking to feed growing nests.
March’s plant of the month is Pulmonaria ‘Opal’. Apart from snowdrops, hellebores, primulas and daffodils, pulmonarias are one of the first plants to flower in my garden and add a beautiful blue hue to the coming of spring.
