Buy Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack Frost' (PBR) Siberian bugloss: large, silvery leaves and frothy blue flowers

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • 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.

STUNNING PLANT

I have some flower beds that get very little sun, perhaps an hour a day in summer, and these little plants have really lit up the area. They do disappear for the coldest part of winter but then come back bright silver in the spring. I wouldn't be without them.
