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.

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.

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.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
