Exquisite green veining throughout the frosted silver leaves resemble the intricate wing of a dragonfly. Sprays of pink buds open to dainty blue flowers for a lovely two-tone effect above the vigorous clump of heart-shaped leaves. An improved variety, the hearty foliage stands up well to heat and humidity.

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.

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.
