King Sized Leaves
Robust, Dynamic, Brawny, Strapping-all perfectly describe this “king-sized” Brunnera specimen. Large, heavily silvered, heart-shaped leaves can reach 12” x 10”. Artfully designed veining with some green margins provide character all season. A mist of sky blue flowers hover in sprays above the wide clump. May self seed, but seedlings with plain green leaves can easily be weeded out. Slightly moist, well-drained soil is best. Absolutely stunning! No perennial garden should be without Brunnera.

Brunnera General Information

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. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Brunnera Plant Care

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.
