Well, it is Pulmonaria officinalis but if you want a cultivar name as well, Seaburngirl, pass!

may be Lewis Palmer. by the way: at a local market they called it soldiers and sailors when I asked why it was because of the red coats of soldiers and blue coats of sailors - how true? don't know! it's other not so nice name is lungwort, however, it is a very pretty early flower whatever you call it :o)

Following Neelan's line of thought it could be called 'Culloden'. Red Coats and Jacobites?

yes I was after a variety name. I will just have to be content. I am sure many cultivars get re-named when they are all one and the same.

"Lewis Palmer" is the one illustrated in the RHS plant guide :o)

I think that is probably the one Neellan as this is an old variety.
thanks for the suggestions.
