Brighten a Shady Niche
A frothy burst of baby-blue, forget-me-not flowers are lovely in the garden or enhancing any bouquet. The deck is stacked with our Jack of Diamonds as the huge 9-10 leaves are as flashy as the flowers. Heavily-silvered foliage is emblazoned with dark green veins. Captivating! Brunnera Jack of Diamonds flaunts heart-shaped, silvery leaves that overlap dramatically at the base for a nice symmetrical mounding habit.

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.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
