Propagating Pulmonaria or Lungwort should be attempted in the spring after they flower or in the fall by digging up the rooted rhizomes and transplanting. Lungwort prefers a cool shady spot in the garden bed in a well draining soil and with withstand a short drought period in summer. Depending on the variety they can be deciduous, semi-evergreen or evergreen so research the variety if you seek a certain affect because the leaf colors also vary, silver blotched to almost black. One thing about some of the blooms as they age they will change color. Pink to blue or visa versa. They also come in raspberry, orange-red, white, coral, cobalt blue and generally they are one of the first perennials to bloom in the spring, April-May, before its leaves out. Honeybees and hummingbirds enjoy their nectar but they are deer resistant
