Lungwort 'Pulmonaria'

Bought several years ago, returns every year in my shade garden, does not get much bigger.

@Grenville pointed me in the direction of Pulmonaria ‘Lungwort’. I still need to narrow it down but it appears to be between Pulmonaria angustifolia and Pulmonaria longifolia. I am going to research my images and see if I have one in bloom.

But I am 90% sure it is longifolia.

This planting is in the Afternoon Sun Facing Maddie's House garden.

Planted.

    Dormant day

    No signs of rebirth just yet. Does not seem to be getting bigger each year but I do remember it in 2012.

@Grenville…. Looks like you are 2/2 today. Trying to narrow it down but it appears to be between Pulmonaria angustifolia and Pulmonaria longifolia. I am going to research my images and see if I have one in bloom.

I do not think it is P longifolia, which can grow quite large and has very long narrow leaves (a handsome plant when grown in ideal conditions, something I could never provide!). P angustifloia is possible, as is P officinalis. But there are also many cultivars available with variously marked leaves and different colour flowers; and as a ready self seeder it could just be a seedling with no name.
