Dynamic leaf texture and color feature supersized silvered leaves etched with emerald green veining. Foliage offers a soothing backdrop to the bright blue airy sprays. Perfect for a woodland garden or semi-shaded border. Brunnera Sterling Silver has increased heat tolerance; however, we recommend some afternoon shade in hotter areas. Silver-leaved varieties of Brunnera hold up best in hot and humid conditions. May self seed, but seedlings may not be true to parent. 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 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.
