Lungwort is a genus of about 16 perennial species originally found in woodlands and at streamsides in Europe and Asia, and for centuries has been used as a medicinal plant. Plants are characterized by pink and blue flowers, and many of them make large, very attractive, almost exotic looking leaves.

Majesté is a French lungwort hybrid variety producing very large, up to 50 cm long, hairy, and broadly lanceolate leaves. They are almost completely silver, with only a thin, dark green margin. They are produced in profusion from late spring till autumn and the whole plant looks like a fountain of exotic foliage from a rainforest. Flowers are small, campanulate, dark pink at first, turning violet blue after pollination, and formed atop about 25 tall, fleshy stems from early spring - usually late March till late April.

Lungwort, especially its large-leaved forms need equally moist, fertile soil that does not dry out, or is waterlogged. It needs partial or complete shade, it is an ideal understory of tall trees providing only filtered sunlight. Use it in mixed beds with hostas or liriope. Majesté is a variety very resistant to mildew if it does not dry out. Very hardy to min. -34°C (USDA zone 4).
