Brunnera Jack Frost is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial grown for its large, heart-shaped silver leaves, edged and veined with bright green. In spring it bears relatively tall, narrow-stemmed sprays of tiny, bright blue flowers rather like forget-me-nots, from clusters of tinged buds.

This is such a useful ground cover plant, and will form large, light-coloured clumps under deciduous trees, in the front of a border or along the edge of a woodland path.

A recipient of the RHS AGM (Award of Garden Merit), for all round excellence in the garden.
