Brunnera ‘Jack Frost’, also known as the ‘Siberian Bugloss’, holder of the much coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, is an attractive herbaceous perennial with large heart shaped silver leaves edged and veined with green, forming a dense low growing mound. From early Spring sprays of small blue flowers, resembling a forget-me-not appear in abundance. Excellent ground cover plant for a shady area or for the front of a border, and often found thriving when planted in the dappled shade of trees.
Looking After Your Brunnera Macrophylla ‘Jack Frost’
Generally pest and disease free, a low maintenance herbaceous perennial requiring very little care. This easy to grow plant is not fussy, so happy in most soil types which are moist but well drained, and preferring a shaded or partially shaded area of the garden. Remove any damaged or dying foliage throughout the season to prevent rotting and then damaging the plant beneath, also dead-head flowers regularly to prevent self-seeding if not required to do so.
