Brunnera Jack Frost Ground Cover
Brunnera macrophylla Jack Frost (Siberian bugloss)
This sought after plant is prized for its beautiful foliage, the large heart shaped leaves emerge in early Spring with the appearance of having been dusted with silver. Leaf emergence is followed by show stopping sprays of bright blue Forget-Me-Not flowers during April and May. A very useful shade loving ground cover that is perfect for underplanting larger shrubs, amongst other perennials to lengthen the season or edging a shady path. 50cm x 50cm.

Brunnera macrophylla Jack Frost prefers to be grown in sheltered partial shade making it an indespensible ground cover plant. They prefer well drained soil with plenty of humus added to retain moisture although well established clumps will tolerate dry conditions.
Cut back old foliage in Autumn at which time its a good idea to apply a generous mulch to maximise the show the following Spring. Established colonies are best divided every few years to stop them becoming too congested – providing even more of these lovely plants to grace those shady spots in your garden.
