Pulmonaria ‘Raspberry Splash’
This cultivated variety of Pulmonaria is a cross between two other cultivars, Pulmonaria longifolia ‘Bertram Anderson’ and Pulmonaria rubra ‘Barfield Pink.’ It is not found in the wild. Wild pulmonaria is not a North American native either—it comes from Europe and western Asia.
Identification: Plants are 10-12" (25-30 cm) tall and 12-18" (30-45 cm) around, with upright-facing lance-shaped dark green leaves that are hairy and rough, and speckled with silver spots. Profuse flower clusters of ½" (1.3 cm) 5-petaled bell-shaped flowers, mixed pink and purple, are very attractive.
