Brunnera

Image of Brunnera

Brunnera have large, silvery, heart shaped leaves that will brighten up dark areas all season long. The pale blue Forget-me-Not like flowers arise in a delicate spray usually in early spring. when flowers fade, clip the stems below the leaves to give them a cleaner look. Brunnera prefer light slightly moist soil, so mix in compost when planting and lightly mulch around the roots (keep mulch off the crown to prevent rot).

Variety shown is 'Jack Frost'
