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.
