BRUNNERA SILVER HEART

New product

It’s the remarkable leaves that catch your eye, large and heart-shaped, their silvered surface almost mirror-like. That will do for starters, indeed for most of the year, but in the early summer (and often later) you also get sprays of bright blue flowers in the style of forget-me-nots. A newly introduced variety, tougher than Looking Glass. Prefers some shade. Fertile, moist but well-drained soil. 12 in. 9 cm Pot.

Probably best to avoid a spot that's in the sun all day, as that can burn the gorgeous leaves. And you wouldn't want that.

Brunneras are native to woodland areas in the Caucasus, though the common name is Siberian Bugloss, the latter part of the name meaning ox's tongue and being attached to quite a few plants in the borage family (Boraginaceae). Good to know.

A quick view of Brunnera Jack Frost, on which Silver Heart is (we think) an improvement:
