Brunnera

Brunnera

Siberian Bugloss

Handsome and undemanding, this ground cover forms large, tidy basal clumps of long-petioled, broad foliage, and displays charming vivid blue flowers that begin blooming in early spring and persist through Memorial Day. Preferring some shade and moisture, Brunnera is at home by water's edge, en masse in the border, or as a filler between newly planted shrubs.

Blooms mid-February–June

Size: 12"–15" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Brunnera macrophylla ‘Dawson’s White’  partial shade
Brunnera macrophylla Dawson’s White

Boldly patterned with broad snowy white margins and green centers, ‘Dawson’s White’ fashions a striking variegation that is further heightened by its endearing, forget-me-not–like azure-blue flowers. An illustrious addition for the shadows, this Brunnera likes it cool and moist, and needs protection from too much sun or hot, dry winds.

Blooms mid-February–June.

Size: 15" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Brunnera macrophylla Hadspen Cream

Not all variegated plants can boast the sophisticated beauty displayed by this British introduction’s lovely foliage. It features felted, heart-shaped, pale green leaves, each emarginated with an irregular, rich cream-colored swath. Delicate sprays of starry blue flowers dance above on graceful stems, offering a soothing yet vibrant presence in a shady spot.

Blooms mid-February–June.

Size: 15" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Brunnera macrophylla ‘Jack Frost’  partial shade
Brunnera macrophylla Jack Frost

Awash in a mercury-like effulgence, broad heart-shaped leaves are etched by light green veins creating the most dramatic crackled ceramic pattern. ‘Jack Frost’s highly refined silvered persona offsets bronze, green and gold foliage, while sky-blue flowers add a playful lift.

A Walters Gardens’ introduction that originated from a ‘Langtrees’s sport, this Brunnera brings sterling accents to the darker corners of your garden.(pp#13859)

Blooms mid-February–June.

Size: 12"–15" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Brunnera macrophylla ‘Silver Wings’  partial shade

Encompassing each pewter-veiled leaf, a thin white margin illuminates this exceptional Brunnera ‘Langtrees’s sport introduced by Naylor Creek Gardens. Ample-sized, widely heart-shaped foliage has a central gray-green swath that separates the distinctive variegation and, in combination with the outlined edge, creates a winglike appearance. Tidy, vigorous and burn-resistant, the stylish gray frosted clump entertains plentiful clusters of long lasting, small wedgewood blue flowers. (pp#13706)

Blooms mid-February – June.

Size: 12"–15" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
