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 showing. 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.
