This wonderful, but rarely available sport of Pulmonaria rubra was found at Beth Chatto's nursery in England and named after her propagator, David Ward. The large, hairy, light-green leaves are surrounded by a wide pure-white border. In spring the clumps are topped with brick red flowers, typical of Pulmonaria rubra. Pulmonaria 'David Ward' is a spectacular plant although somewhat difficult to grow, so we'd only recommend it for advanced gardeners. It requires a well-drained, but moist site for long-term success.
