Lungwort

Although native to Europe and western Asia, Lungwort is commonly grown as a garden ornamental for its pretty flowers enjoyed by bees. Lungwort was first used in the 1500s to aid in lung conditions and was later used in the treatment of tuberculosis. The word “wort” comes from an old English word, “wyrt”, meaning a plant, root, or herb. Not only does it have a strong affinity for the lungs, but its leaves are also shaped like mini lungs. 

 

There is also a tree lichen sharing the same name, which is why it is sometimes referred to as Pulmonaria.
