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.

Notes on Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack Frost' (PBR)

"Takes some beating as ground cover; an absolute delight planted alongside spring-flowering bulbs and hardy ferns in the cottage garden or spring flower border"

Brightens up a shady spot !

Good in a shady area and seems quite hardy. It quickly established itself and spread over the area nicely.

Absolutely delighted!

Used it to fill a dark corner beside a wall under an apple tree. It has flourished and gave a lovely display of bright blue flowers although I had bought it for the lovely foliage colour.

Long season of interest

The plant itself is hardy and has a long season of interest with variegated leaves as well as delightful true blue flowers. The particular plants supplied have just survived flooding on my clay soil and a series of late frosts and snowfalls, so were clearly strong and healthy specimens.
