Default What is my name??

I planted a bunch of these from a friend who called it a "trout
plant".
Don't know if it is a wildflower or cultured.
Did an exhaustive google search to no avail.
It is spring now in midstate NY, so I took my digicam outside and have
attached a pic:
http://www.geocities.com/scorman/pic...ers/sm0381.jpg

It supposedly was called a trout plant because of the green leaves
speckled with white/cream spots.
It is now about six inches high and has two different colored flowers
...blue and light purple.

TIA for a link that defines this pretty perrenial.

The link is not available right now, so I can't see the picture, but just
from your description it sounds like a pulmonaria. There's lots of
different varieties, all of them lovely. I've never heard it called a trout
plant, but that could be a regional thing.

Here's some pictures:

but they don't really do it justice,
and here's a good article:

You got it in one, Sue, and without benefit of the photo. It is indeed
Pulmonaria, also commonly called lungwort or sometimes Jerusalem Sage. I've
never heard it referred to as trout plant either, but it fits.

Looks like lungwort (pulmonaria).

I've never heard of pulmonaria referred to as Jerusalem sage, normally that
is Phlomis.... http://www.diggingdog.com/pages2/phlomis.php

I've heard it called Trout Lily, but not Trout Plant.

When I first saw it I was told it was commonly called "little boy and
little girl" plant because of the blue and pink flowers. But was also
told it was called pulmonaria.
