This dependable little ground cover works in areas that receive four or more hours of daylight. From late summer to early fall lungwort’s green bronze foliage becomes covered in small gentian blue flowers that really pop. Since it blooms later it works well as a filler adding interest to the garden late in the season when many other garden plants are already spent. In the fall, the foliage turns a rich orange/bronze color that further accentuates the blue flowers. It is a hardy plant that will grow well in a variety of locations. If you are looking to fill in a garden bed, need a ground cover or border plant lungwort may be a good choice.
