|Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack Frost'|
Named for the Swiss botanist Samuel Brunner (1790-1844).
Common name - Siberian Bugloss.
True blue flowers resemble those of Forget-me-not. This is where its other name comes from: False Forget-me-not. I find Brunnera's flowers striking. Their color reminds me of a Blue Poppy. Alternate leaves help to catch light in a shady spot. They are attractive in several regards: heart shape, silvery color, green veins. Very showy! What is interesting about them is that I can almost see them getting bigger.
What attracts me to this plant: easy to grow, low maintenance, cold hardy, both shade and sun tolerant, long bloom, color of flowers is rare, both foliage and flowers are pretty, deer resistant, no pests.
I hope it will spread in my garden!
