Buy Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack Frost' (PBR) Siberian bugloss: large, silvery leaves and frothy blue flowers

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil:fertile, humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    In early spring, large, mid-green, heart-shaped leaves that look as though they have been dusted with silver appear, followed by tall sprays of tiny, bright blue, forget-me-not-like flowers. For the best variegation, a sheltered, shady site is essential. Although it prefers moist conditions, brunnera will tolerate dry soil once established, and will spread to form a large clump. This is a gorgeous groundcover plant for the front of a border, or lighting up moist, shady areas under the canopy of deciduous trees, or for edging a woodland path.

  • Garden care: Cut back to the base of the plant any stems with leaves that revert to plain green. Lift and divide the plant every two or three years in late autumn.

Notes on Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack Frost' (PBR)

"Takes some beating as ground cover; an absolute delight planted alongside spring-flowering bulbs and hardy ferns in the cottage garden or spring flower border"

It's a fantastic buy

This is a beautiful plant for the driest full shade

Tough and beautiful

This arrived in excellent condition and settled into our garden very quickly. It has thrived and grown well since, despite our garden being frequently windswept and with quite acid soil. The foilage is so attractive and always seems to look healthy, so when it has its beautiful little blue flowers, these are a real bonus (and they last). It looks so much neater and more attractive than the similarly coloured pulmonaria near to it. I think I am going to have to divide it soon after only one year's growth.

Good in a shady area and seems quite hardy. It quickly established itself and spread over the area nicely.

Absolutely delighted!

Used it to fill a dark corner beside a wall under an apple tree. It has flourished and gave a lovely display of bright blue flowers although I had bought it for the lovely foliage colour.

Attractive leaves

Attractive ground cover provided by variegated leaves. Too early to comment on flowers but hoping for spring colour.

Long season of interest

4

The plant itself is hardy and has a long season of interest with variegated leaves as well as delightful true blue flowers. The particular plants supplied have just survived flooding on my clay soil and a series of late frosts and snowfalls, so were clearly strong and healthy specimens.
