Cultivar Notes - 'Jack Frost'
'Jack Frost' Brunnera is one of the most arresting silvers for shade. Its leaves, painted with an overlay of metallic silver, are finely etched with green veining that matches the narrow band running along the edge.
Genus Notes - Brunnera
Brunneras are classic perennials that are treasured for their shade tolerance and lovely blooms. They make a fantastic groundcover, though the variegated forms may be slower to spread than the species. Try growing them in containers too so they will be close at hand when you want to snip a few blooms for a spring bouquet.
Beautiful woodland plant, preferring moist soils and plenty of humus. If the soil becomes too dry, the foliage easily crinkles and dies. Attractive forget-me-not type flowers bloom late spring into early summer. Use only in areas where adequate moisture is supplied.
