Lungwort is a genus of about 16 perennial species originally found in woodlands and at streamsides in Europe and Asia, and for centuries has been used as a medicinal plant. Plants are characterized by pink and blue flowers, and many of them make large, very attractive, almost exotic looking leaves.

PINK HAZE is a pink flowering lungwort variety, presumably from the saccharata group. It was found as a chance seedling by John Ernest Solari and Rosemary Ann Solari from Woking, England, in 1996 in the vicinity of other lungworts with similar leaves but differently colored flowers. Those are pastel pink and, unlike most other varieties whose flowers open from pink buds and mature to blue, this variety makes a different show: indigo blue buds and the flowers mature to pink, in a transition phase with blue hues. They appear on short, 20-25 cm long, fleshy stems from early April.

During flowering emerge small, broadly lanceolate to shortly elliptical, light green leaves with silvery grey spots. After flowering, their colour slightly darkens and the leaves increase their size two or three times. You can enhance the foliage quality by hard pruning immediately after flowering by cutting the whole plants down to the ground. New leaves will be larger, healthier, and will remain handsome and evergreen during mild winters. PINK HAZE makes dense to almost congested tufts which resemble hostas. Patent No. PP14307 was granted in 2003.

Lungwort, especially its large-leaved forms need equally moist, fertile soil that does not dry out, or is waterlogged. It needs partial or complete shade, it is an ideal understory of tall trees providing only filtered sunlight. Use it in mixed beds with hostas or liriope. Eve if the leaves look alright after winter remove all of them in early spring. Hardy to min. -29°C (USDA zone 5).
