Brunnera macrophylla 'Variegata'
Bold, heart-shaped fuzzy foliage with creamy white leaf margins produce clusters of bright blue ‘forget-me-not’ blossoms. Loves dry shade and deer do not like its fuzzy leaves. Flowers in shades of blue appear between May and June.
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.
