Pulmonaria 'Raspberry Splash' PP#12,138

Large spotted leaves brighten the shade!
Plant Patent #12,138. Can you believe this standout beauty for the shade garden?! Bethlehem Sage is always distinctive, but 'Raspberry Splash' is simply over-the-top lovely, with giant bloom clusters, quick growth, and great resistance to Powdery Mildew and slugs! You can't "grow wrong" with 'Raspberry Splash'!

The flowers arise in giant, hanging clusters, bell-shaped and colored a rich shade of raspberry-pink. They bloom for several weeks in late spring, filling the shade garden with startling color.

But even when the blooms pass, 'Raspberry Splash' is colorful and bright. The foliage is quite large and fuzzy, a dark green speckled with white like drops of paint. It stays fresh and pretty from spring through fall in any moist, well-drained soil. And this plant tolerates even full shade!

Many Bethlehem Sages have problems with slugs eating their leaves and powdery mildew infections, but 'Raspberry Splash' is highly resistant to both. This makes it easy enough for even a new gardener to be successful with, and an absolutely carefree choice for any shady spot!

'Raspberry Splash' was bred from Pulmonaria longifolia 'Bertram Anderson' x Pulmonaria 'Leopard.' Introduced in 2001, it has become an instant classic! It reaches 12 inches tall and 18 to 24 inches wide. Cut it back after the blooms pass for fuller, more dense foliage the rest of the season. Don't miss out on this fine source of color for the shade garden. Zones 4-9.

Just Beautiful

I got this plant last year, of course not much to look at except its foliage spread quickly. I live in the south and we had a warm spell and it is filled with beautiful blooms in January! Needed plants for shade garden and this one hit the mark
Splendid addition to my shade garden

The color is simply scrumptious, and the plant is very hardy. I have one in my water garden and one under my deck; I want to buy another, but they are sold out for this year!
So Fun!

I planted this in the front of my foundation bed last spring, and it grew and spread. The foliage is very interesting. This spring will be the first time we see the blooms, and I can't wait. It is already covered in buds. I don't have a single complaint about this hardy, attractive plant.

A Tradition of Distinction

Since its founding in 1920, Wayside Gardens has brought the rarest and highest-quality plants to the garden market. Wayside was founded in 1920 by two acclaimed growers who came together to pursue their shared vision of marketing all high-end plants for the serious garden enthusiast. Originally located in Mentor, Ohio, Wayside Gardens swiftly grew a reputation for the highest-quality plants and the most sophisticated clientele. In 1975, Wayside was purchased by the Park Seed Company, and moved to Hodges, SC.  The company has flourished since then, growing to become an undisputed leader in rare and unique plant growing.

Unparalleled Selection

Wayside's horticulturists travel the world in search of new and unusual plant cultivars and proudly offer the garden industry’s most sophisticated selection of high quality and rare perennial plants, bulbs, trees, shrubs, roses, vines, and indoor plants. Beginning with ties to the Dutch family bulb business in Holland, our horticulturists have developed close relationships with perennial and bulb growers throughout the United States and Europe, providing access to many rare and unique garden treasures. Throughout our history we have had the pleasure of introducing numerous exotic foreign and domestic plant cultivars to the American garden market. The Wayside collection of new and exclusive plant products is so preeminent that the catalog has long been lauded in the industry and is even used as a reference work in horticultural schools.

Impeccable Quality and Value – We Guarantee It!

At Wayside Gardens, “pedigreed plants” and “root strength” have always been watchwords. The Wayside Gardens impeccable plant quality begins with selecting only the finest new product offerings with improved plant features and numerous advantages for our gardening customers. These improved plant selections are then grown to our exacting quality standards by garden industry professionals. This produces superior plants with well developed root systems and healthy, vigorous plant growth habits. That is why we proudly guarantee all Wayside Gardens' products to perform as advertised, being of superior quality, true to type, and shipped properly.

Larger Containers & Well Established Root Systems

We use larger containers and grow bigger plants than other nurseries, leading to greater root strength. Where appropriate, Wayside Gardens propagates our plants vegetatively rather than from seed, to ensure the plants possess the correct form and are true to variety, like a true double form, as opposed to the single or semi-double forms that may result from seed propagation.
