Brunnera ‘Jack Frost‘
Common name: ‘Jack Frost’ Siberian Bugloss, Heartleaf Brunnera, False Forget-Me-Not
Brunnera macrophylla is a classic perennial that is treasured for its shade tolerance and lovely blooms and attractive foliage. They make a fantastic groundcover, and also do well in containers so they will be close at hand when you want to snip a few blooms for a spring bouquet.
The leaves of 'Jack Frost' are intricately detailed with a crackle-like finish. Though the leaves are dark green, they have a heavily frosted overlay which allows only the green veining to show through. From mid to late spring, baby blue, forget-me-not type blossoms are held in clusters several inches above the shimmering foliage. The effect is breathtaking.
