Wordless Wednesday

One thing I’m horrible about is keeping the tags from perennials. Maybe you can help me identify what this spring bloom is?

    Looks like a brunnera

  2. Hi Bren, I sent you a tweet regarding a site which might help you out in identifying the plant, but thought I’d post the URL on here so that others can have access to the resource, just in case they ever have similar questions.

    Hope this is useful.

  3. Sure looks like pulminaria. The spotted leaves are a good identifier. Beautiful shot!

  4. Hi Bren, your photo is of lungwort, Pulmonaria spp. perhaps P. longifolia. There are a few different species and a number of cultivars. Sorry I can’t be more specific than that – it’s a lovely plant!

  5. @BG_garden Wordless Wednesday http://t.co/TmXXfwdn #gardenchat Bren, Sure looks like pulminaria. Great shot of it!

  6. Hi Bren, beautiful flower. I have never seen it before. Maybe you could take the pic to a garden center, they might know. Good luck

  7. Love Pulmonaria for its bright blue flowers in spring! Now I want to go out and buy one. Why is it whenever I move I leave plants behind?

  8. In agreement with others – definitely Pulmonaria. You might be interested in my latest blog post, where I share a unique characteristic of this plant! What a coincidence – seriously! I didn’t see your post until just now. :-)

    They’re gorgeous plants, aren’t they? I love their blooms, but I think I love their foliage even more!

  9. Yes, beautiful little plant. Common name in my area is Boy-and-Girl plant, because of the lovely pink and blue flowers on the same plant.

  10. I agree – Looks like pulmonaria. Such a beautiful Spring plant :)
