Description

A local favorite for dry shade, this perennial appears in early January with broad tongue-shaped leaves. The striking foliage is soon followed by tall spikes of intense blue flowers with white centers. Disappears each summer only to emerge larger the following winter. A striking, long-blooming perennial, and one of our showiest plants for planting under oaks. Beautiful with other dry shade lovers, such as Wood Fern, Fernald's Iris, and Coral Bells. Hounds Tongue does best with little or no supplemental water, but will tolerate summer water in a well drained spot.
