Brunnera 'Looking Glass'
Common name: SIberian Bugloss, Heartleaf Brunnera, False Forget-Me-Not
Brunnera is the silver jewel of the shade! Standing an impressive 12-15 inches tall, 'Looking Glass' displays leaves with an all-over sterling silver patina. This solid silver coating is developed as the large, heart-shaped leaves age, by early summer. The leaves tend to curl under, adding a softness to its mounded form. Springtime brings clusters of tiny, Wedgewood blue, forget-me-not type flowers which naturally float above the young foliage that is silver with green veins. This is a sport of 'Jack Frost'. Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit -- 2012
Brunnera macrophylla is a classic perennial that is treasured for its shade tolerance and lovely blooms. 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.
And don’t forget the floral display! Brunnera 'Diane's Gold' has a long bloom that emerges in spring, and it is enchanting with sprays of sky blue flowers against its chartreuse foliage. You’ll want fresh cuts of this flower for the spring bouquets.
