Brunnera macrophylla ‘Jack Frost’

Brunnera macrophylla ‘Jack Frost’

(Heartleaf brunnera, Siberian bugloss)

One of the most attractive and useful foliage and flowering perennials, it has few faults, growing easily in sun or shade where not too dry. Early forget-me-not spring flowers are followed by broad heart-shaped silvery leaves edged and finely veined with green. Cutting back leaves and watering in late summer will renew with bright new foliage. Many combinations are possible; for instance, use between shrubs as ground cover.
