  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    In early spring, large, mid-green, heart-shaped leaves that look as though they have been dusted with silver appear, followed by tall sprays of tiny, bright blue, forget-me-not-like flowers. For the best variegation, a sheltered, shady site is essential. Although it prefers moist conditions, brunnera will tolerate dry soil once established, and will spread to form a large clump. This is a gorgeous groundcover plant for the front of a border, or lighting up moist, shady areas under the canopy of deciduous trees, or for edging a woodland path.

  • Garden care: Cut back to the base of the plant any stems with leaves that revert to plain green. Lift and divide the plant every two or three years in late autumn.

    Comments about Crocus Brunnera macrophylla'Jack Frost (PBR)':

    I bought and planted 2 of these in a shady spot in my garden, planting them out in March. It has a north westerly aspect so gets late afternoon sun (from about 2:30pm until about 6pm in the height of summer and my soil is heavy clay. Both the plants have done well and grown into really healthy large specimens in the one season. One of them flowered from late May until Mid August and still has a flower remaining (last day in August). The leaves are beautiful and were the reason that I bought the plants, in certain lights they are iridescent. The flowers are really pretty too being true light blue. I really like these and would recommend them to light up a shady spot, they are certainly doing well where I have planted them.

      I bought it on the open day last weekend. Never even noticed it in the online catalogue! I guess it's not easy to capture the beauty of it in pictures. Such a lovely plant, the flowers are a beautiful shade of blue, they seem to glow. I like the foliage too. A must-have!
