Pulmonarias and the Borage Family
This work on the family Boraginaceae details the biology, ecology, and cultivation of more than 200 species and hundreds of varieties. This family includes not only the popular genus Pulmonaria (commonly known as lungworts), but also many other highly ornamental plants. Apart from the old favorites such as forget-me-nots, comfrey, borage, heliotrope, and alkanet, the book details many less well known plants that include honeywort, gromwell, languid-ladies, and prophet flower. It gives full details on the biology and classification of Boraginaceae, pulmonarias in their habitat, cultivation and propagation, descriptions of Pulmonaria species and cultivars, and other plants of the borage family in the wild and in cultivation.
