Brunnera macrophylla 'Sea Heart'
This new cultivar is similar to Brunnera ‘Jack Frost’ with striking, green-veined silver foliage. However, its larger and thicker leaves hold up in hot humid conditions. 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.
