Pulmonaria officinalis

6 comments


Its buds are pink at the beginning, but as they grow old, they turn into azur blue.


This plant is very good for a chronic cough and for all respiratory infections in older people. Taste of the tea is perfect, it reminds me of a lecorice.

This grew wild in the school grounds where I used to work, but I could never remember its name! The pink and blue are fascinating - like borage, which i used to confuse it with (until I bought a borage plant, which now colonises every corner of the garden!)

Really? Slad, it is very delicious tea. Long time ago we had here a very good tea which was on prescription - it was mixture of several plants useful for respiratory system. Its name was PULMORAN. It contended mostly this plant. And the tea is blue :)))
