Prized for its large highly frosted and veined heart-shaped leaves. Brunnera Jack Frost produces a truly spectacular display in the shade, even more so when in bloom with its bright blue Forget-me-not flowers in spring. Will multiply politely. Named 2012 P.P.A. Plant of the Year. Patented.
Brunnera are ideal for a woodland setting, a semi-shaded border, or along a pond edge. New cultivars add wonderful choices to this versatile garden performer. Lovely naturalizing carefree habit. Tolerates moist, well-drained soil in partial shade.
Clean up in spring - declining leaves act as mulch for winter protection. Low maintenance otherwise. Division not needed for 6-10 years or longer unless clumps die out in the center. Volunteer seedlings can be removed from base of parent and transplanted.
