Though many new varieties of Brunnera have become available in recent years, this straight species is still one of the best available. It is a vigorous grower, quickly spreading to form mounds of green, heart-shaped leaves. From mid to late spring, lovely baby blue, forget-me-not type flowers are produced in panicles just above the foliage. A large woodland planting of Brunnera is breathtaking. It can also be grown in containers and makes a wonderful cut flower for spring bouquets. Brunnera is a woodland plant that should be grown in full shade and consistently moist soil. They will grow the fastest and strongest in rich soil. Little care is needed once Brunnera is established. Cut back the old foliage in the spring rather than in the autumn; it will help to protect the crown during the winter. A winter mulch is also recommended. Though Brunnera tends to self-seed, the resulting seedlings are easy to pull out from unwanted areas or to replant elsewhere in the garden. It may also be propagated by division in the spring. Supplied in approx 2 litre containers.
