Top 10 shade plants
Most types of lungwort offer green foliage pleasantly streaked or spotted in silver. Lungworts bloom in early spring and produce blue, pink, or white flowers as new foliage emerges. 'Mrs. Moon' is one of the most well-known varieties; it offers pinkish buds that open to blue flowers.
Growing: Most lungworts (Pulmonaria spp.) are hardy in Zones 5-8; in warmer areas they're evergreen. Lungworts typically grow about 1 foot tall.
Tip: Plant varieties with spotted foliage among plants with plain-green leaves to create a whimsical contrast of colors. Lungworts with spotted leaves pair especially well with plants that have fine-textured foliage, too.
