Brunnera 'Jack Frost'
Brunnera is an easy plant to grow and is sometimes known as 'The False For-get-me-not'. We grow it for its unusual foliage in spring. During late Spring, Brunnera 'Jack Frost' is shows off with lots of small, blue flowers which look similar to forget-me-not flowers, hence the common name. The flowers are not really the main attraction for us, which is the lovely heart-shaped foliage silver-grey with pronounced dark green veins. Brunnera likes to be planted in a fairly moist and humus-rich soil, when it will spread and form quite  reasonably sized clump.

Another interesting silver-leaved form of Brunnera is 'Mr Morse' which has white flowers rather than blue. Brunnera 'Betty Bowring' is floriferous and long-flowering. The bright white flowers make a dramatic contrast with the dark green foliage.
