Brunnera is a great plant to choose if you’re looking for something a bit more unusual for the spring garden. Throughout May, Brunnera ‘Jack Frost’ is covered with lots of small, bright blue flowers which look rather like forget-me-nots. These are complemented by the beautiful heart-shaped foliage which is a pale silver-grey with pronounced dark green veins. It grows to height of 45cm and spread of 60cm.
To get the best results, grow Brunnera ‘Jack Frost’ in a moisture-retentive, humus-rich soil, in partial or full shade where it will form lush attractive ground cover at the front of a border. It looks particularly striking planted in drifts in the woodland garden.
