Shade Plant of the Week - Pulmonaria

Pulmonaria is an early spring blooming plant that is also known as lungwort.  It is closely related to borage.  The leaves range from solid green, to spotted, to silver colored.  The flowers range from blue, pink, or purple.  Many of the plants, like the one below, will have flowers that start off as one color and change as they bloom and fade.  The leaves have a somewhat fuzzy texture to them, which is why I think the deer will not eat it.
