Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack Frost' PP#13859
Sporting silvery leaves and green veins, this Brunnera’s foliage gleams in the sun, providing a lovely contrast to its miniature blue flowers in the spring. Very sun tolerant. Foliage can be cut back to stimulate new growth if leaves are damaged by hot sun or drought. Clear, French-blue flowers appear between April and May.
Brunnera has large, dark, textured leaves (eight to ten inches wide) with contrasting tiny blue flowers. It is good for border, massing, or woodland and takes some dry shade.
